Finlay to run for council

The number of people vying for a seat on Vernon City Council continues to grow.

Jasmine Finlay officially announced her candidacy for council Thursday.

Finlay said she has attended council meetings for two years and she understands the responsibilities involved.

Finlay is a certified permaculture designer, having studied water harvesting and erosion control, surveying, composting and other technical elements under two qualified engineers.

She has researched sustainable urban planning strategies that include designing urban landscapes that work for both young and old, mitigating inadvertent human error, and the reclamation of public space and community building.
