Councillor will continue to serve community

The one councillor who didn't run for re-election promises to stay active in Mission

Editor, The Record:

For the last six years, it has been my great pleasure to serve Mission as a councillor. In that time, I have had the opportunity to connect with many of my neighbours and I have been impressed, time and again, by their deep commitment to our community. I have discovered that we are a town rich in resources, with none greater than our people.

In the last few months, many of you have approached me with kind words of gratitude, but the real accolades belong to everyone who contributes to our community fibre day after day. In particular, I want to give thanks to our veterans, firefighters, search and rescue volunteers and first responders. They, along with their supportive families, represent the essence of our civic spirit. These men and women risk their lives and give an incredible amount of time to make us all safer.

Our community is built upon the backs of innumerable volunteers, coaches, youth leaders, service club members, congregants, community-minded businesses and other givers who live amongst us. Mission has proven that a community’s leadership clearly rests in the hands of us all.

Personally, my commitment to Mission and my community service shall not end as I step away from council. I am merely looking forward to working a little more in the background.

I’m deeply grateful for the personal support I have been given as a councillor, but I am even more impressed by your support of our wonderful home. It has been my honour to serve.

Paul Horn
