Councillor Chuck Stam kept everyone waiting until Wednesday morning to declare he would be seeking a fifth term of office on Chilliwack city council.

“Chilliwack has not finished evolving,” Stam says in a news release, “and must continue to adapt and improve as a community, to accomplish the tasks our residents need us to perform in the complex environment before us.”

Emphasis on the “bottom line” is a personal priority for him, along with “value for taxes, resident quality of life, and sensible environmental sustainability.”

He emphasized the importance of “local jobs and economic well-being” since he believes everything flows from a strong economy: great facilities, services, roads and infrastructure.

“I will continue to promote the idea of advancing Chilliwack in becoming a leader in pedestrian and bicycle friendliness combined with an aggressive road rehab program,” he said.

The city needs to focus energy on providing “safe, green” options.

“There are currently too many roads in Chilliwack that are simply unfit for pedestrian and cycling traffic.”

Stam is lead designer and president of Precision Building Design. He’s served on council for 12 years, and on a range of committees. He is chair of the Public Safety Advisory Committee, Transportation Advisory Committee, representative to Chilliwack Tourism and vice‐chair of the Fraser Valley Regional District board.

He and his wife, Heather, have four children.
