Council Candidate: John Hansen running in Harrison Hot Springs

Village of Harrison Hot Springs: Hansen, John - Council Candidate

  • Oct. 24, 2014 8:00 a.m.

My name is John Hansen and I am running for Council in Harrison Hot Springs. My wife Debbie and I have been married for 38 years and have two grown children and three grandchildren. We have lived in B.C. since 1978 and moved to Harrison Hot Springs over two years ago after looking at many different towns to retire in. In our opinion, Harrison Hot Springs was and continues to be the best place in B.C. to live!  We have embraced all the wonderful outdoor activities it has to offer including hiking, canoeing and bicycling. I have been able to pursue some of my hobbies long on the back burner including restoring an old sail boat and joining the Agassiz Harrison Rod and Gun Club in which I currently hold the office of treasurer. Working in this capacity has been rewarding as we have been able to make contributions to the Cancer Society and Agassiz Harrison Search and Rescue and offer a ham radio course as well as upgrade the club’s facility.

I am a retired Professional Engineer with over 30 years’ experience in the food industry designing, building and maintaining facilities and the design, procurement and construction of thermal power plants. I have served in the capacities of maintenance manager, project engineer, engineering manager and project manager. I have participated in or managed all sizes of projects located in B.C, Sask. and overseas and have personally been in charge of multidisciplinary teams on projects up to $150M and worked on others up to $1B. Throughout my career, I have always prided myself on being a very approachable person willing to listen to people and their ideas.

Since moving to Harrison, I have taken the time to observe the Village and get a feel for how things work here. I see various issues that need to be addressed and because of this, decided to run for council. I am hoping that a new and fresh viewpoint can be of value to the Village and am willing to work hard on behalf of the people of Harrison Hot Springs to elevate it to a new level of prosperity and liveability.

Thank you in advance for your support on Nov. 15.
