Cameron Hull throws his hat into the ring for Chilliwack mayor

City of Chilliwack: The downtown store owner is the second mayoral candidate to declare his intentions to runbin the Chilliwack elections

North South Military owner Cameron Hull announced he’s running for mayor of Chilliwack.

The downtown store owner is the second mayoral candidate to declare, in the wake of incumbent Sharon Gaetz confirming last week she would stand for re-election.

“After much soul searching and being prodded by people I respect, I have decided to run for the office of Mayor of Chilliwack,” Hull wrote on Facebook. “I believe we need a fresh vision for our city and we are at a time when people must have a clear choice.”

His priorities include preserving Chilliwack landmarks, and revitalizing downtown “without ripping down whole blocks and destroying small businesses.”

He’s against locating the Aevitas waste recycling plant near the Fraser, and wants a city council that is both “transparent and accountable,” and respects agriculture.

Hull wants Chilliwack to “grow at a reasonable rate without having to spend $18 million on houses built on a landslide,” he said.

He also questions the $600,000 earmarked for consultant Walas Concepts “to tell us what we already know” about the downtown, in terms of revitalization plans.
