Dawn Tucker is "a community-conscious citizen who isn’t afraid to challenge local politicians or question policies.” - Vernon Morning Star, August 2022

I am a proud born and raised Vernon resident, an educator, urban beekeeper, dog owner and community advocate.

I’m an educator so every day I am involved in our community and sharing information with others. I moderate a local Facebook forum that is the “go to” for keeping more than 20,000 Vernon and area residents informed. I started a local political discussion group that today counts more than 1,800 followers. I’m also a co-admin for other groups such as Vernon Area Fire/Flood Watch, Vintage Vernon, and Mutrie Dog Park. Most recently, I was part of the organizing committee for Vernon’s first Pride Week and I was honoured to be selected by my peers as the Grand Marshall for Vernon’s first Pride March in recognition of my longstanding work as an advocate in our community.

I am an advocate for our community, because our community matters. I have spent many years now, attending Council meetings and informing myself. We need our Council to be accountable leaders with demonstrated action. We residents deserve a Council that can make the right call. We residents deserve a Council that listens and responds to us. I am here to listen, to ask questions, and to help you find answers.
