Larry Podmoroff is vying for a seat on Grand Forks city council

Born and educated in Grand Forks, for over 60 years, the Podmoroff family have been a part of the heritage and culture that made Grand Forks. Having attended trade school in Kelowna for carpentry and apprenticed throughout B.C., Larry went into business on his own for cabinet making and finishing. He currently is still self employed as a finishing contractor in Grand Forks.

With strong family roots in the community he now seeks to run for council.

His interests are the same as yours, to see the City come back to a positive cash flow, improvements and replacement of the aging infrastructure, more ethical hunting practices, forming a project committee for the water meter program and get public involvement before going any further, restructure of the City Hall and improvements to animal control with bylaws for the parks, schools and walkways.

Economic development is the key to bringing in new businesses to Grand Forks. With support of the already flourishing business association we can ensure tourism, recreation, logging, mining and agriculture are represented in our community plan.

With no “political” experience his quest for making the community a better place was a factor in running for council. His involvement in the community will mean that he will work diligently on your behalf. He is willing to listen to anyone and take suggestions and ideas from the public back to council. What he lacks in experience is compensated by his vision to bring a knowledge and history of the city heritage to the table.

And, if you empower him with your confidence, he will do everything to represent your interests and achieve common goals and ideals.
