Election 2018: Steven Cross running for city council

Steven Cross is running for city council in the upcoming municipal election.

Cross said he cares deeply about this truly unique mountain town.

“Revelstoke is on the move and facing a lot of challenges,” Cross said via email. “Fostering growth while keeping our specialness won’t be easy but it can be done and I believe that my experience and collaborative approach to problem-solving can help make a positive difference.”

Cross and his family moved to Revelstoke in 2013. Prior to that, while living in Toronto, Cross served on community boards, business improvement boards and not-for-profit boards.

“Some of the more challenging governance situations I have learned from included board roles with the Strategic Leadership Forum, the Canadian Centre for Ethics & Corporate Policy and the Ethics In Action awards program for business,” Cross said.

As well as governance education through an Executive MBA program and leadership development programs while working at Mountain Equipment Co-Op, Cross’ experience includes serving on the Poverty Reduction Coalition and the LFI Farmers Market steering committee here in Revelstoke.

“I believe it is important to ask questions and to be a good listener in order to serve in office as best as possible with all points of view in mind,” Cross said. “There are no perfect solutions but really good listening and reflecting before acting goes a long way to getting good things to happen.”
