Christina Longley-Scarisbrick intends “to change Princeton into the top rural town in British Columbia.”  Born in the U.K., She moved to Canada in 1966 at the age of 20 and worked for the Hudson’s Bay company before changing careers.  She worked as a commercial marketer for four years before turning to financial planning.  Christina was one of the first women in Canada to become an underwriter.

Christina is “happily married to husband Roger Scarisbrick with seven children, one set of parents and seven grandchildren between them.”

Christina wants to make children her #1 priority.  “Infants and children should have the best start available to them.”  She quotes John F. Kennedy, “Children are our finest natural resource and only hope for the future.”  Scarisbrick also wants seniors, affordable housing, and a better hospital to be top priorities for Princeton.  She wants to be part of the team that encourages beautification of the town and growth of small business.”
