Norma is a long time Cranbrook resident, part time high school teacher and former forester. She was first elected to Cranbrook city Council in 2014 and was re-elected in 2018.
Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, she represented the city at a number of community events and made an effort to meet a wide variety of Cranbrook citizens.
Blissett is pleased with her record on Council.
“ As a council, we have funded significant improvements to city infrastructure and voted for the zoning amendments required for multi-family housing . We voted in favour of the zoning amendment required for a temporary homeless shelter that has yet to be opened. “
“Our city continues to grow. Council has been able to fund significant community improvements while keeping taxes relatively low. I think we have done a good job of finding a balance between spending and taxation.”
“ I am pleased with what has been accomplished over the past eight years. I would like to take advantage of what I have learned and continue to work on behalf of the citizens of Cranbrook for another four-year term.”
“If re-elected, my priorities will be to continue replacing our aging infrastructure to encourage new growth and to support our existing buildings, to continue to work with BC Housing, ANKORS and Street Angels in order to house the unhoused in our community, improve our downtown, support housing and business development and reduce our city’s greenhouse gas emissions while improving resilience to climate change.”
