BYELECTION 2016: Cathy Korolek

Cathy Korolek is a candidate in the City of Grand Forks 2016 byelection.

Cathy Korolek

I moved to Grand Forks with Rod 13 years ago. I have two children and three grandchildren

My 23 years with RBC gives me a strong financial background. I left the bank to start my own business Heart n’ Sole Quilts. Over the past 16 years I have experienced the highs and lows of being self-employed

I have been an active member of Rotary for 23 years. Currently, I sit on the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce board.

Seeing Grand Forks prosper and thrive is important to me. I have no private agenda to take to council. I believe in conserving and protecting our natural resources. To encourage our cultural community, to grow a community that encourages young families to stay and raise their kids.

Grand Forks is a hub for outdoor activities. Opportunities for eco tourism are possible.

Yes, we need parking downtown and yes we have other areas to be addressed; however, let’s move forward

Please cast your vote for me May. Thank you.
