Upon winning the council seat, Margot released a statement thanking her family, friends and supporters. Here is what she said -
Good morning, Kamloops! This has been quite the whirlwind, and I am elated that our campaign efforts have yielded a positive outcome. Thank you, for electing me as a Kamloops City Councillor. My most sincere thanks to my husband, my family, my friends and my campaign team for working so hard alongside me. They say it takes a village, and this effort was definitely not doable without the great help and support I received from everyone. Thank you for showing confidence in me. I look forward to bringing your voice, concerns, and thoughts to the Council table. I know my years of experience in volunteer work and business will help me bring thoughtful leadership and sound counsel to my seat at the Council table. I will do my best for you.
First 90 days In the first 90 days, I will be undertaking to learn as much as I can about the multitude of challenges facing our city. With a lens of accountability and management reporting, I will take a deep dive into many of the aspects of the City operations to ensure we are getting the best value for our tax dollars, that the City is being run as efficiently as possible, providing the best service to our residents while still allowing us to move forward with revitalization and liveability in our city. I am a taxpayer as well, and I want what is best for all of Kamloops. Thank you to everyone who ran for the position of Mayor and City Councillor, showing your commitment to our city by putting your names forward. This has been a very exciting campaign. I think the interest in the election, and the voters' commitment to making the city better by turning out to vote, made it evident that people were engaged. I look forward to working with all the candidates, as well as the citizens, in the coming years. The voters have spoken and have given us a good team to build a solid, functional City Council to do the work ahead. It is time for us to roll up our sleeves and get to work. We must all put the greater good first and foremost, as we are elected to serve all the residents, and they deserve our best efforts. With Thoughtful Leadership and Sound Counsel. Sincerely,
