FVRD candidate: Maxwell Newhouse

Fraser Valley Regional District: Newhouse, Maxwell – Director, Area H: Newhouse advocates sustainability

Maxwell Newhouse.

The sustainability of Cultus Lake is my main objective, to generate awareness and co-operatively create a plan that will bring the communities around the Lake together for the common good and future of our Lake.

Maxwell hopes to put his past experience to good use by running for Director of Fraser Valley Regional District Electoral area H.

Electoral area H will encompass Cultus Lake, Soowhalie Reserve, Lindell Beach and the Columbia Valley.

One of the key issues in this region is the treatment of sewage due to the continual growth of the population. Maxwell will make this his main mandate and make himself approachable to listen to resident’s concerns. Maxwell’s easy going nature emulates a quiet yet confident style that allows him to talk with people of all social and economic backgrounds.  Maxwell is retired and will be able to focus his full attention on this position.

He understands the nature of this beautiful area we all live in and will do his best to help balance the need for new development, without comprising the environment.  Maxwell

Maxwell has an extensive background in construction working as a union plumber and owning a gas fireplace store in North Vancouver (Fireplaces by Maxwell).

After selling his business in 1995, Maxwell felt the need to return to his roots, he was raised on a small farm on Vancouver Island and therefore moved his family to a hobby farm in Yarrow. This gave him time to fulfill his passion to pursue an art career. Moving to Cultus Lake in 2000, he is active in the Lake community, helping out with the yearly Christmas Concert at the Cultus Lake hall or lending a hand in many of the events in the Cultus Community, Market in the park, Cultus Lake Community Association, Class (Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Strategies) Art on the Farm in Columbia Valley to name a few.

During his art career Max has displayed his works in many galleries across the country, British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec and Ontario. His style has remained consistently naive and charming, lending itself wonderfully to children’s illustration. .

In 2001 he was published by Tundra Books from Toronto, the children’s division of Random House Canada.  At present he has seven published children’s books, all with Tundra.

Max and his wife Lillian have three children, two sons, a daughter and four grandchildren. Max was living in North and West Vancouver for 20 years, before moving to the Fraser Valley.
