Burquitlam's Ben Craig announces byelection run
Another candidate has thrown their hat in the ring for next month's civic byelection in Coquitlam.
Burquitlam resident Ben Craig said in an email that his neighbourhood is under-represented on council and he wants to be a voice for a rapidly changing section of the city.
"With Evergreen Line construction underway and thousands of new residents coming to our area, it's more important than ever to have a strong voice for our region," he said in an email. "Burquitlam will transform in the next few years."
Craig has been a financial adviser for 15 years and said his platform will focus on small business and making sure the costs of government are kept under control.
The byelection will take place on Oct. 26.
