"It is with enthusiasm and a passion for the community, that I announce my intentions to run for a position on City Council during the upcoming election," says Williams Lake business leader, Craig Smith.
Smith has been a long time member of the community and an even longer resident of the Cariboo. After over twenty years of work, play and participation in the community, Craig feels it is time to give back in another way.
Having the opportunity to serve the community in this way, Craig feels that he can bring some of his knowledge and expertise to the Council table. His extensive business past has given Craig an inside look at what it takes to sustain business in the downtown and how to weather the ups and downs. He has a passion for business and understands that a community needs a healthy economy to support and sustain business. He has the drive to look for creative and innovative ways to make the business community prosperous. He feels that stimulation of economic development and the recruitment and retention of business is at the heart of what this community needs to stay healthy for generations to come.
