Candidate profile: Bob Faiers

Bob Faiers is a candidate running for city council.

  • Nov. 14, 2014 5:00 a.m.

I am a 4th generation born and raised resident of Cranbrook. I have been married to my wife Terry for 28 years and I have on daughter who was recently married, all living in the community. I have spent over 25 years in the forest industry before opening my own small business True Flite Archery.

I have served with many non-profit organizations over the last 30 years, working in the fields of forestry, land-use planning, hunting and trapping.

I feel that my life experiences can offer a different point of view on City Council.

Cranbrook has many issues facing our community such as roads, spending, environment, wildlife, the water shed and local business.

My two main priorities if I am elected would be long term financial planning and infrastructure. It needs to be reflected that the community is open for business.

City Council needs to have more open debate. By having more open debate means more transparency and a council that will better understand the needs of the community.

I promise fair representation and I will stand up for what is right. I want to see a vibrant community that is not afraid to grow but still retain the small town values.
