Election 2018: Nicole Cherlet running for Revelstoke City Council

Nicole Cherlet is running for city council in the upcoming municipal election.

“I want to be a voice for the front lines, for small business owners that seem to be getting lumped with big business owners,” Cherlet said. “We are the lifeblood of a community.”

Through her work as the president of the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce and the Local Food Initiative, Cherlet has come to realize that it is a city councillors job to represent the needs of the people in their community and to advocate for those needs to be met to all levels of government.

“I think that the problems we are facing right now, a lot of the problems we are facing right now are beyond the scope that we are able to deal with” Cherlet said. “We need the help of the province, we need the help of federal.”

She also plans on leaning on her experience as both the owner of Big Mountain Kitchen as well as previous hospitality and customer service work.

Cherlet has lived in Revelstoke for 10 years.
