Council candidate: Stewart McLean

City of Chilliwack: McLean, Stewart – council candidate: McLean seeks third term

I am seeking a third term on Chilliwack city Council. It has been a great honour to have had the privilege of serving the good people of Chilliwack for the past 6 ix years.

I have had the opportunity to work with an incredible and very talented group of members on council and the strength and cohesiveness of this group has been of great benefits to our community. We have been able to continue maintaining low taxes and a debt free status, while building our community in many ways. We are Blessed to live in such a gorgeous city which offers so many resources and recreational opportunities for everyone to enjoy.

During my 2 terms on council we have seen the opening of The Chilliwack Cultural Centre, The Health & Housing Contact Centre, Cyrus Centre, the start of the Healthier Community Committee work and many other projects. Continued work on the redevelopment plan of our downtown. A very challenging step but the right one and we need to continue moving forward in the process.

Having served on most of the committees of council I have worked in all the areas of council’s work. We need to continue building our economy and protecting our agricultural land. We need to continue working on crime and public safety matters and the list of needs for our community is long. It will take a strong and dedicated team of council members to continue the many works that have been started and those to come.

I very much appreciate the support I have received from this great community allowing me to serve you on council for the past six years. I look forward to the discussions, questions and the opportunity to meet with all of you through the election campaign. I have been a small business owner in Chilliwack for the past 15 years. Originally working for the Provincial Government as a Rehabilitation Councillor my first position being in Chilliwack and my office was in the old Courthouse on College Street. I am a member of Chilliwack Rotary, Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce and have worked on a long list of voluntary boards and working groups around the community.

Thank you Chilliwack for your support, Councillor Stewart McLean.
