Corally Delwo moved her family to Kamloops to get away from drugs and other issues in the oil patch.

Nine years later, the 43-year-old Batchelor Heights mother said the River City is “falling apart at the seams.”

Homeless tents, discarded needles and traffic control issues near her kids’ schools in Westmount and Westsyde have prompted Delwo to run for city council in the Oct. 20 municipal election.

“Just concern for the community, to be honest,” she told KTW.

Delwo does nails out of her home when she’s not shuttling her kids (ages 12, 17 and 20) between lacrosse and other extra-curricular activities, in which she often lends a hand in aspects like fundraising.

She formerly owned Luxurious Escape tanning spa and salon in Valleyview and her husband works in oil and gas, where the two met when she worked as a medic in Fort St. John.

Delwo was born in Calgary and raised in Grand Prairie.

She said she backs “well-managed industry,” was in favour of the proposed Ajax mine and supports pipelines.

“It would be nice to see more jobs come to Kamloops,” she said.

Infrastructure upgrades also top Delwo’s would-be to-do list if she is elected to a seat around the horseshoe at city hall.

She would also like to see a turf football field built in place of the former golf course at McArthur Island because she said there’s not enough space at the Tournament Capital Centre.

Delwo also wants to see changes made at Memorial Arena.

“I find that it’s very poorly kept,” she said of her experience during her son’s lacrosse season at the venerable arena on Victoria Street. “The whole basement smells like sewage.”
