Council Candidate: Darrin Metcalf running in Corporation of the Village of Midway

Corporation of the Village of Midway: Metcalf, Darrin – Council Candidate

Darrin Metcalf

 

I will start off by telling you about myself. I moved to Midway, British Columbia in 1981. I live with my loving wife and two amazing children! I cannot think of a better community to have started my family, or raise my children. I own a small business, Pourboys Mechanical and have seen good times and bad.

I believe that small business is the heart and soul of any community. Such businesses offer jobs, peace of mind and even financial security to the very people that live in these communities. Most recently we have had the opportunity and good fortune to have Vaagen Fibre Canada invest in our community.

Opening the community to new businesses, big or small, is a benefit for all citizens and will bring new opportunities to many. With more people, comes more growth, which is a benefit for the community as a whole.

I myself welcome all newcomers to the village and think that an amazing place such as this has a lot to offer anyone considering the area as a place for them and their families.

I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to all past and present mayors and village councillors for helping shape this community into what it is today. I would also like to thank the local citizens for all their volunteer work and dedicated time to the groups and societies that are in this community.

I am always open to new ideas, and will listen to all concerns and suggestions from citizens. I promise to be your voice in the council chambers. I urge you to consider me, Darrin Metcalf when you vote for a thriving community.
