Candidate for City Councillor
Resident of: Brocklehurst
Current Occupation: Current City Councilor | Retired Canada Post letter carrier of 30 years
I have served as a City Councilor for the beautiful City of Kamloops since 2018.
I am currently serving my third term as a member of the Southern Interior Local Government Association. I am also Chairperson of the Civic Ops committee. Additionally, I have served as a member of the development, engineering, finance, and sustainability committees. I hold the Vice-President position of the Kamloops Airport Authority Board as well.
Prior to becoming a City Councilor, I worked for over 30 years at Canada Post as a letter carrier, immersing myself daily in the local community. I was part of the Kamloops Social-Planning Council, PAC Committees, and coached local youth sports teams.
When I decided to run for council in 2018, I wanted to bring the community’s voice to City Hall. Over the past four years, I have dedicated myself to attending meetings, functions and spending time with committees and business owners across the city to try and help make Kamloops a better place. I am seeking re-election to continue upon my passion in helping make Kamloops a brighter and stronger community. I pride myself on not missing one meeting where I have been a member or representative of. A vote for me is a vote for someone who will represent you everyday, be an ambassador for the city, go out and communicate with business members, residents, and elected officials daily while being transparent and available in the process.
Thank you for your consideration.
Kamloops has been my home for over 25 years. I am a proud husband and father of three, with all three of my children having attended K-12 and post secondary education in Kamloops. They have also taken part on various local sports and recreation teams.
In my spare time, I am taking my grandson for walks in the beautiful parks around our city, playing golf at the magnificent greens Kamloops has to offer, or watching our local sports teams play at arenas around the city.
