PROFILE: Kevin O’Beirne, councillor

Members of SWMR and CAUSS runs for council again

I have lived in Mission all my life.

My wife and I raised three children, and have seen the ups and downs to raising a family on a budget in our community. I am a present member of South West Mission Ratepayers, CAUSS, and CUPE 703.

Formally, I have been a business owner, and worked the past 20 years as a volunteer for Mission Fire/Rescue. I am presently employed as a special education assistant for school district 42.

I have always been an advocate for people’s rights to information and freedom of speech. I do not support in-camera meeting unless absolutely necessary. Transparency is a must to have the support of the community.

Since 1989, I’ve made an effort to understand the process of municipal government, and try to keep informed about concerns and issues.
