Welcome to my blog site. This is where I will share my thoughts and insights on life as a small town councillor. Please scroll through my past posts.
A bit about me: I was elected as a first-time councillor in 2017 for the Town of Black Diamond, Alberta. I have a family; my spouse and I and our son. We own a duplex with my sister and share a front and backyard. We try not to argue too often. I am self-employed. I like dogs and horses. I try to do as much of what I enjoy in life as opposed to what I hate. Speaking of my dislikes: I try not to waste, I don’t like olives at all and crowds make me nervous.
I look forward to sharing more about myself and what I see and do about town. Please feel free to contact me or leave comments. This blog is a place not just for me to ramble but for you to present your ideas, complaints, queries and thoughts.
I’ll end this introduction with one of my favourite thoughts, and I think a great way to look at life:
Spend the afternoon. You can’t take it with you. — Annie Dillard

Hey where are all the other councillors blogs?? 😉 Love it. Nice to read your writing, too, Veronica.
Veronica rules!!! Don’t know how you manage so much in one day! Very fortunate to have you on council. Cheers to you mah dear Veronica🤗
Delightful blog, Veronica. I think this is a wonderful way to communicate what you do and what you learn as a councilor. Your dedication and hard work is valuable and most appreciated.
Curiously, I was watching the progress on this home across from Salus Wellness and was impressed that they had such a good rain water catchment set up……..I did not realize that was your establishment. High five to you and yours!
Sorry the water in the carnival water dump wasn’t pre-warmed in the sun for you, brave woman;) Just looking at the picture gives me shivers. However, I imagine you are in a good position to assess who you would want on you team should you take up baseball!
Here is the missing “r” 😉
Great job on the explanations of the water sewer increases, on the November blog.
