In small towns across the United States, the city council plays a crucial role in improving the quality of life for its citizens as well as bringing in new and exciting opportunities that serve to boost the local economy. In Stephenville this is no exception.
According to a recent report from The Western Star, Stephenville Councillor Laura Aylward is seeking a sixth term on the city council, which may come as no surprise to anyone who’s followed her as she’s worked diligently to make Stephenville a better place to live, work and raise a family over the years.
“Aylward plans on continuing to speak out to maintain and improve quality health care services at Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital for all our citizens,” wrote Frank Gale for the news source. “As a member of the physician recruitment committee she will continue to work on the recruitment of physicians and lobby government for improvements to long term care and home care services for seniors.”
Having contributed her free time to Stephenville and making it a better place to live via volunteering, Aylward was recently awarded the Queen’s Jubilee Medal in recognition for her work.
Aylward’s plans should she be reelected also include pushing for low rental housing options for area seniors, a new courthouse, upgrading the town roads and pursuing a new College of the North Atlantic Headquarters, the news source stated.
Aylward is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to Stephenville working to make itself a better place to live and work. As she and her colleagues push to bring in more businesses and job opportunities for the town’s citizens, Stephenville will only become a more attractive place to raise a family. And with Stephenville real estate opportunities booming, now’s the time to contribute to the growth of this beautiful city.
