Council candidate: Ed Wood running in Harrison Hot Springs

Village of Harrison Hot Springs: Wood, Ed - Council Candidate

  • Oct. 16, 2014 12:00 p.m.

Ed Wood

I am Ed Wood, 54 years of age, married for 33 years, two daughters, and two grandchildren. I’ve been living in Harrison Hot Springs for 1 ½ years.

Growing up, my family would visit Harrison Hot Springs frequently, 45 years, visiting the pool and having picnics on the beach, year round. With the breath taking views, fresh air, clean water, and quietness, this tranquility attracted me to build our retirement home in Harrison Hot Springs. My wife and I have actually pounded almost every nail.

I started my career as a Marine Engineer with a diploma that led me to a life of continuous learning. My red seal trades professions include electrician, power engineer, refrigeration mechanic, and many certificates including Municipal Utility Operator.

Spending half my career in Private and the other in Municipal, including City of White Rock as Facilities Maintenance Manager receiving official recognition from the Mayor for Distinguished Performance of Duties Through Demonstrated Commitment, Enthusiasm, and Teamwork following my project management of the construction of the new Fire Hall (on time and on budget). Township of Langley as Utility Operator, and most recently the City of Vancouver as Manager of Capital Maintenance of the Facilities Design and Management department upon departing receiving recognition from the General Manager of Business Planning and Services, Quote “you brought a discipline and passion to the job that the City had not seen before”. Private employers include ETDE, a UK facility construction company working in the position of Operations Manager for the newly built RCMP headquarters in Surrey, BC, in a P3 public, private, project with the government of Canada in a one billion dollar 25 year contract.

With direct Municipal experience in extensive hands on and management positions, my recent retirement of two years, my commitment to hard work and Simplicity, demonstrated through the construction of our new home, would make me an ideal candidate for councillor.
