BEING A positive influence in the community is why one candidate is running to be the Kitimat-Stikine regional district director of Thornhill, otherwise known as Area E.

“I want to be the change I want to see [in the world],” said Sarah Crampton.

Rather than come in with her own agenda, Crampton says she wants to hear what the public wants to be done within the regional district.

“I see public office as representing the people rather than my own personal agenda. Rather than push my own personal [ideas], I want to hear from people and vote according to what the community wants, what’s best for the community,” she says.

She has lived here for six years after leaving her hometown just to experience the north.

“I just packed up my van and moved here from Vancouver Island,” she said, adding she wanted to come north for the adventure of it after living her whole life on the Island in Cobble Hill, which is outside Duncan.

Crampton says she brings to the job a degree in psychology and women’s studies and lots of experience working with children and in the community.

Right now, she works as a special services assistant on a casual basis for the school board.

She put her name into the running for a board director seat for change.

“I want to try to represent the community of Thornhill as best as I possibly can,” she said.
