Frank Everitt is seeking a third term on city council.
Everitt was first elected to council in 2011 and was re-elected in 2014.
“Working together as a team with the best interests of the community at heart has been a rewarding experience”’ said Everitt. “As a community, we pulled together and did a remarkable job with the fires in 2017 and again 2018, but so much more has been accomplished in the past four years. My commitment was to be open and accessible to the residents and business community and I will continue to embrace this practice with the support of the residents of Prince George in the coming election.”
Last fall Everitt retired from the United Steelworkers Union Local 1-424, where he served as president for more than 30 years. Also last fall, Everitt was appointed to the board of Northern Health. He says the current council has worked hard to improve infrastructure in the city and that work must continue.
“The actions we have taken to improve our infrastructure (both above and underground) with committed road rehabilitation has and will continue to improve long term benefits for Prince George,” said Everitt. “This will continue to attract new investment and jobs as well as provide a more diversified community for those living or moving to our city.”
Everitt has been a member of B.C.’s Round Table on Environment and the Economy, the Select Committee on Homelessness and Affordable Housing, Vice Chair of Employment Action, Vice Chair on the College of New Caledonia, Past President of Prince George and District Labour Council, board member of Spruce Credit Union, board member of Canadian Institute of the Blind, and sat on Forestry Round Table, and the Premiers Summit.
“I am very proud of the achievements we have made as both a council and community and look forward to continuing to serve the people of Prince George, working for you and together with you to achieve the goals that make us the best place to live and invest. We have a promising future ahead and more work to be done.”
