BUSINESS

My career with Canada Post Corporation spanned 30+ years, beginning as a Postal Clerk and working my way up from there to Director of Postal Operations.

 

TEAM

A highlight of my career was being elected by my peers as President of the Fraser Valley Association of Postal Officers and serving those that elected me for the following three years.

 

PERSONAL

I worked in many locations throughout Canada over the years; however, when retiring 10 years ago, my wife, Joanne and I chose Harrison Hot Springs to build a home and spend the rest of our lives. We have two children and three grandchildren.

 

I have kept very involved in our community. I have worked for Elections BC as the District Electoral Officer in Mission & Maple Ridge since 2008. I also sat on the Property Assessment Review Panel for the Ministry of Community, Sport & Cultural Development.

 

I volunteer with the Chilliwack Chiefs Hockey Club, and was a member of the Host Committee for the World Junior “A” Hockey Challenge held in Langley in 2011.
