Incumbent Pouce Coupe councillor announces mayoral run

“If the community is looking for change – they will know which candidate for mayor to vote for.”

Veach says she's ready for the driver's seat in Pouce Coupe.

It was at a conference with other area politicians when Dani Veach decided she would run for the mayoral seat in the 2022 election instead of re-election as a councillor “I was always going to do it, however this pushed me into running sooner than I thought I would." she says about the decision to run for the village’s top elected position just a year into her term as a Pouce Coupe councillor.   “I’m proud of what I've done so far and want to move forward past the status quo. Seeing these projects completed from the mayor’s seat seems like the right move for this election,” Veach says, elected last year in a byelection along with Marcel Woodill after a pair of resignations earlier in 2021.  When asked specifics – fire hall and department improvements, sewage lagoon, road improvements throughout the village, and repairing the image of Pouce Coupe are Veach’s main concerns.  “Instead of real fixes, it seems the village has looked for band aids solutions to solve major issues in the past, and we have to look at how the village is thought of by neighboring municipalities, First Nations leaders and communities, and the provincial government,” she says.  “If the community is looking for change – they will know which candidate for mayor to vote for.”  Veach expects to get active in August as it relates to campaign issues – beyond public events already scheduled.
