Candidate profile: Brad Scriver

Brad Scriver is running for Cranbrook city council.

  • Nov. 14, 2014 8:00 a.m.

I was born and raised by a family that has spanned five generations in the Cranbrook area.  I have also been involved with business in this community for the last nineteen years.

With sixteen years of civil construction experience, I feel that I am uniquely qualified to understand the issues and the solutions to Cranbrook’s infrastructure problems.

This experience has also given me insight into the current drought of affordable housing in Cranbrook and what could be done to reduce housing costs.

In addition, I am very concerned with economic growth in our region.  I believe that rather then putting up endless hurdles and roadblocks for new businesses or for existing business expansions, let’s be innovative and work towards solutions to increase business growth in our area.

Increased business not only creates jobs but increases our business tax base, which in turn benefits the entire community. I feel strongly that our city needs to strive to be more efficient and embrace equality for all its citizens and businesses.

I believe that honesty, hard work, and equality are the fundamentals for any successful endeavor.  Given the opportunity, it would be my honor and privilege to bring my experience, values, and ethics to the council on behalf of the citizens of Cranbrook.
