Area E Alternate Director, Lucie McKiernan
Regional Districts have a unique position called “Alternate Director”. Alternates are appointed by each Director and are sworn into office so that they can participate in and vote at meetings on behalf of their Area when the Director is absent.
Lucie McKiernan and her husband moved from White Rock to the Sunshine Coast and settled in Elphinstone in 2011. They love the rural lifestyle, the proximity to the ocean and the amazing arts and culture in our communities from Langdale to Pender Harbour.
Many of you will recognize Lucie from her former role as the Constituency Assistant to federal Member of Parliament Pamela Goldsmith-Jones, and then our current MP Patrick Weiler. She retired in October 2020 and is now active as a volunteer with the Resource Centre in Sechelt and Restorative Justice. Her career in Human Resources spanned more than 50 years on the Lower Mainland as well as here on the Coast.
Lucie said: “I really didn’t plan on getting back into politics but I value the hard work and commitment of our SCRD Directors and working with Donna is always rewarding and fun. I look forward to making a contribution as her Alternate.”
