Candidate profile: Ron Popoff

Ron Popoff is running for Cranbrook city council.

  • Nov. 14, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Business is the cornerstone to Cranbrook’s continued growth.

Business pays a higher rate of property tax than residents. So, if we want lower taxes, we need a broader business tax base. With new and prosperous business we will have sustainable jobs for our children. We can afford to grow our community with better roads and sidewalks, and support community organizations.

Cranbrook has been home to Joanna and me for 25 years. During this time, we have raised two wonderful children, Laura and David. I have volunteered in their school and club activities.

With my long-term community involvement with Kinsmen and now Rotary, I am addressing our community’s greatest needs through leading special projects, fundraising, collaborating with community agencies, and providing leadership on our Executive Boards.

As the Health Inspector, I work with local businesses and the City to make Cranbrook a safe and healthy community. As manager of the Kootenay region, I demonstrate leadership, strategic planning, budgeting, and labour relation skills. I know how government works and how to achieve success.

I have a broad perspective of what is Cranbrook today and where we need to grow in the future. Let me use my skills and experience to work for you on City Council.
