Peter Humphreys announced he is entering the race for city councillor in the upcoming municipal election.
Humphreys said in a news release that he will use knowledge gained from his previous employment with the City of Calgary Parks and Recreation and his extensive business experience in guiding his decisions on city council.
Humphreys has been very active in the on-line political scene in Revelstoke.
“After years of public commenting, I believe it is time to convert my opinions to action especially in cost control,” Humphreys said in a news release.
Humphreys believes we need to reduce general spending to offset the rising cost of infrastructure, sewer and water. He believes the city needs to play their part in making life in Revelstoke more affordable.
“I find traditional campaign methods to be very short term. By using two-way social media communication I can stay engaged with the electorate long after the election has ended,” Humphreys said.
Humphreys has chosen not to accept campaign donations and will not be spending any money on his campaign.
“I am going to run my campaign the same way I would run the city. More importantly, I don’t believe in the environmental waste that goes along with an election,” he said.
