A youth soccer coach launched his campaign for Port Coquitlam council this week.

Vince Donnelly said he intends to seek a seat on council after talking with his cousin, Fin Donnelly, the NDP MP for Port Moody-Coquitlam.

A 10-year PoCo resident, Vince Donnelly said he’s concerned about urban growth and increased traffic congestion. He’s also calling for additional turf fields at Gates Park, changes to the city’s recycling program, more licensed daycares and youth and seniors programs.

“I think a caring community coming together and striving to reach our common goals will result in a winning team,” he said in a press release.

Municipal elections will be held Oct. 20 across B.C.
