Mission’s current mayor will seek another term during the municipal election in October

Mission Mayor Randy Hawes has confirmed that he will seek to win another term in office.

“I am honoured to have served as your mayor with a great team of dedicated, caring councillors over the past four years. Together we have achieved great strides to move Mission forward. Working as a team, we always put Mission’s best interest first,” he said in an email to the Mission Record.

“We have accomplished great things but there remains much work to do. That is why I am again asking for your support for another term as mayor.”

Hawes also asked voters to support the councillors who are also seeking another term.

“This is a critical time in our history and keeping this proven team together will keep us on the right track.”

Hawes has served on council for 13 years (12 as mayor) and served 12 years as an MLA representing Mission.

“I moved to Mission in 1979 as manager of the TD Bank and rather than accept transfer and move, decided to make Mission my families permanent home. I spent several years in real estate and land development prior to being elected to city hall.”

Hawes also coached hockey and baseball for many years in Mission and has always believed that involvement in sports is important in children’s development.

He listed several council accomplishments that have occurred in the past few years including:

Public Safety – authorized six new RCMP officers, adding full time firefighters to enhance coverage and hiring new bylaw officers including a parking bylaw officer;

Parks and Recreation – funding a new artificial turf field, built a new skateboard park, completed a new Parks Master Plan and developed the Stave West Recreation Area plan including three new campgrounds

He also pointed to the $3.5 million facelift for downtown and the completion of a new Official Community Plan to guide development as important accomplishments.
