Her campaign will revolve around making Thunder Bay a welcoming community. “While this sounds like such a simple statement, it really is the basis for attracting developers, people and talent to Thunder Bay. We need to harness the opportunities for growth. As the largest city in the northwest, we should be focusing on our strengths and showcasing what we have to offer. I am confident that I will bring a fresh perspective to the table and look forward to giving Westfort a voice in council chambers,” said Oliver.
