PROFILE: Paul Hockridge, running for council

I am a 21-year resident of Mission, married 35 years, with two grown daughters and two grandsons.

I am currently president of the Mission District Historical Society, past-president of the Rotary Club of Mission Midday, receiving the Paul Harris Award (Rotary’s highest honour) and earning a Distinguished Service Citation.

With a background career in the Office Automation industry since 1976 and running a local business installing computers and networks for small businesses in Mission for the past 16 years, I possess strong business and organizational skills.

I bring an independent, entrepreneurial outlook to council and will work with fellow councillors to ensure that an informed decision is made based on facts and work diligently towards improving Mission according to the wants and needs of the citizens.

To sum it up, I will bring commitment, responsibility and honesty!
