Phillip Maxwell seeks seat on council

City of Chilliwack: Phillip Maxwell has thrown his hat in the ring for a seat on city council.

Phillip Maxwell has thrown his hat in the ring for a seat on city council.

“My wife and I moved to Chilliwack in 1997 so we could raise our family without the hustle and bustle of big city life and haven’t regretted it one bit,” he said.

He’s been an active member of a large co-operative housing complex in Burnaby, and his employment background is in management of various types.

Maxwell said in a release he’s currently seeking employment, while considering a return to school.

“Up until now my involvement in the community has been restricted to being one of the administrators on the ‘Beware! You Need to Know’ Facebook group, but after seeing the concerns, posts and comments from the 6500+ members over the last year or so, and the effect that this group can do to change people, I have decided it was time for me to step up and try to do my part and running for city council is the next logical step,” he said.
