The 12th and final candidate to introduce himself was incumbent, Bob Corless.
“Tonight, it is indeed a pleasure to be addressing you with Kitimat on the cusp of economic growth, local businesses working hard, many new faces and a positive outlook. This is a Kitimat I’ve grown to enjoy, industry working in harmony in nature. It is almost a pleasure to see rush hour traffic again,” said Corless.
He stated the investments in Kitimat are due to the hard work of administration, economic development department, the Chamber of Commerce and the Haisla Nation. He said the Council had a lot of work to do buying land, fixing Raddley park, the west side road and work with the Haisla Nation.
However, Corless explained this is not what Council does, they do water, sewage and roads as well as the budgets.
“Yes I believe in Kitimat, the Northwest has a bright future of jobs and hope for our young people. Let’s work together,” said Corless.
