Rob Payne is a candidate in the City of Greenwood 2016 byelection.

Rob Payne

I was born and raised in Penetanguishene, Ontario which is a small town situated on Lake Huron. I moved to B.C. and started to travel.

While overseas I volunteered with Hope for the Nations, a non-governmental organization. In Thailand I started a business to fund a housing project for pregnant teenagers. Returning to British Columbia in 2010, I decided to move to Greenwood to be close to family.

In 2011 I was hired by Boundary Electric as a high voltage technician, and continue to work for the company.

During my time in Greenwood I have coached baseball for both the kids and the ladies’ teams and I was a hockey coach for both the atoms and the peewee teams.

I sat on the board for West Kootenay Minor Hockey and was the president of Boundary Minor Hockey from 2013 – 2014.

I have a son who attends the Greenwood Elementary School and in the summer we enjoy camping and recreational activities.

Greenwood has become my home. I plan to stay through retirement and I am committed to investing in the future of this city. I look forward to the opportunity of representing you, the residents of the City of Greenwood.
