DAYMAN, Charmaine

As a local farming resident in the Copper Coast for the past 37 years, I feel our farming community needs a voice. My husband Paul and I have 2 adult daughters who attended Wallaroo Kindergarten, Mary MacKillop Catholic School and KMHS. Our 3 grandchildren are now following into these same schools. In that time I have been President, member of P&F and school board. I volunteered and trained to become a Qualified Ambulance Officer with Wallaroo station for 6 years of service. For 2 terms I held the position of Community member of Wallaroo Hospital Advisory Council. I volunteered and was a committee member for NYP Riding for the Disabled. Last year I became a member of Kadina Lions. If elected I am willing to contribute to Council and serve our vibrant community, to continue to be an area that everyone chooses to live, work, play and retire.
