Jag Gill running for Mission council

Local business owner wants to collaborate with the community

Jag Gill is the latest Mission resident to throw his hat into the political ring.

Gill, owner of Mission City Pizza, wants to represent the community as a councillor.

“I decided to run for council this year to be able to collaborate with the community of Mission, to achieve more positive changes. We can accomplish so much more in our beautiful community if we work together,” he said.

Gill grew up in Mission and plans on starting a family here.

“I want to focus on Mission being a great place for the children of Mission and the future generations. I want to be one of the six decision makers who will develop the future of Mission and support the vision of our residents.”

The 23-year-old believes he can bring a different perspective to the council table and encourages other young people to get involved.

“If you want to make a change it doesn’t matter how old you are. You just have to start.”

Gill added that as a local business owner he has had many conversations with people regarding what would benefit Mission.

“Mission is a growing community and with this growth issues that are going to need attention will include focusing on public safety, building local business, finding alternative routes to reduce traffic, and trying to encourage the local government to expand our hospital.”
