Jim Palm is one of the 18 candidates seeking to win a seat at the City of Powell River Council table on October 15.

Eighteen candidates have entered the race to fill six City of Powell River Council seats. The Peak asked each candidate the following question:

Why should voters choose you to be a City of Powell River councillor?

Here is the response from Jim Palm:

First, because I love and care about the place my family calls home, Powell River.

I am experienced as I have served this community and its citizens for the past 38 years both as an educator, and over the past 14 years as a city councillor. I have enjoyed the challenges we have faced and look forward to the work ahead.

I care about the future of Powell River and the well-being of its citizens.

I have the experience necessary to make informed decisions on the most important issues facing Powell River residents: Drugs and crime; high taxation; retention of the industrial tax base and related future jobs; priority loading on BC Ferries for residents; and proposed name change.

I will continue to attend all meetings on your behalf, well-prepared and having done my due diligence on each issue. I will listen and participate in all discussions at council, including from the people most affected.

I will cast my vote on the recommendation which is in the best interest of the residents of Powell River. Vote Jim Palm for a practical, down-to-earth approach to civic duties.
