Election 2018: Mike Brooks-Hill running for city council

Mike Brooks-Hill is running to be a city councillor in Revelstoke in the upcoming municipal election.

Brooks-Hill is running for city council because he is concerned with the direction the town is moving and feels there are segments of the population whose views were not being brought to the council table.

“I am running again this time, because I don’t feel that much has changed,” Brooks-Hill said in an email. “Revelstoke is still a wonderful place to live, if you can afford it.”

Brooks-Hill does not have any formal experience with local governance but has regularly attended city council meetings as well as committee meetings and public hearings.

“What I have seen is that it’s not that hard to be a city councillor,” Brooks-Hill said. “The challenge is to be a really good city Councillor. That is what I hope to be.”

Brooks-Hill moved to the city in 2003.

“Obviously, I didn’t move here for the ski resort,” he said. “I came here to work, and spend time with my family, and gradually fell in love with this town.”
