Council candidate: Ken Popove

City of Chilliwack: Popove, Ken – city council: Popove excited to be running for re-election

Ken Popove.

His first Cultus Lake Beach Party was in 1987 raising money for the children’s park that still stands today; he opened Ken’s Tire & Wheel in 1994; he began sitting on the Business Improvement Association Board in 2000; and in 2011 he got a seat on City Council. For 27 years Ken Popove has continued to show his love for Chilliwack, and now he’s asking for your vote.

Popove sits on 9 Boards in Chilliwack, including being the Co Chair for the Chilliwack Healthier Community Stewardship Council, the Chair of the Downtown Planning Implementation Committee, the Chair for the Development Process Advisory Community and yet his involvement continues to expand.

Popove just began chairing the Low Barrier Housing Committee which plans to improve housing for the homeless in Chilliwack.

“We have hired a group of people to go out on the streets of Chilliwack and talk to the people who are in need of help. We want to know what the people need, if we build an infrastructure will they come? Why or why not? What can we do to make a positive change? There are many unanswered questions but what I do know is that this needs to be an open conversation.” Popove explains.

And that’s just the beginning, Popove feels this way about all of the projects that are currently underway in Chilliwack. For example, he explains that the plan for the Downtown Core is no doubt an aggressive one, but he feels that it’s the right one, and that doing nothing hasn’t worked. He’s ready for the hands on work Chilliwack needs to continue to evolve. He knows Chilliwack is a city of change makers, and he is proud to be one of them.

“It’s the people that make this town what it is, and what it will continue to become. We’re in this together, it’s our city and our future.”
