City of Chilliwack: Harder, Kim: council candidate: Harder promises energy, experience

Kim Harder

Kim Harder is running for election to Chilliwack city council. She is married and has lived in Chilliwack for 22 years. Her two children attended public school locally and now attend the University of the Fraser Valley. She dedicated herself to her family, which allowed her the opportunity to be actively involved in the community.

Kim has held leadership roles in organizations such as La Leche League, University Women’s Club, Chilliwack United Church, PAC, Run for Mom, Chilliwack Academy of Music, and The Chilliwack Hospice Society’s November Night Gala.

From 2001-2003 Kim held the position of Funds Development Coordinator for the Chilliwack Family YMCA and was instrumental in initiating an annual giving campaign, ‘The Power of Giving’ now known as the ‘Strong Kids’ campaign.

Kim is excited to announce her decision to run for Chilliwack city council.

“I was motivated to run for city council by my belief that we need more women in decision making roles. Even in 2014 women are often an under represented sector of society.

“I am at a point in my life where I have the experience, energy, time, collaborative and leadership skills that make me an excellent team player.

“Chilliwack is unique. We have an emerging urban vibrancy mixed with a vital, rural agricultural backbone located on the historical land of the First Nations.

If I am elected to city council I will work in a collaborative manner to guide decision making leading us into the future.”
