Another Port Coquitlam city incumbent will run for re-election.

In the 2014 municipal election, Penner placed third for the six spots open on council, garnering 5,844 votes.

Currently, the retired mechanical technician chairs the city’s transportation solutions and public works committee and is the vice chair of the community safety committee. He is also PoCo’s alternate on the Metro Vancouver board of directors and is a member of the region’s parks, planning and zero waste committees.

First elected in 1999, the 47-year resident and PoCo secondary graduate is the founding president of the Hyde Creek Streamkeepers; he and his wife, Brenda, opened Meridian Meats and Seafood in 1989, which is now owned by their sons.
