Neil Krog is vying for a seat on Grand Forks city council

Hello, my name is Neil Krog, my wife Andrea and I passed through Grand Forks on our honeymoon 27 years ago. We liked the community so much that we, along with our family, moved here. I am a First Aid Safety Instructor for Selkirk College, I also own Twisted Forks Catering. I have previously served on city council for 15 years and was also a director for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary.

I would like to thank the citizens of Grand Forks for allowing me to serve on council for the past three years and would appreciate your support to continue. I quickly realized that being an effective councillor does not always concern the big projects or controversies. The bulk of the job is the detail work, the bylaws, the paperwork, and the behind the scene governance that makes the community function smoothly.

In my time on council I have seen things that worked and those that did not, my experience allows me to function effectively within the framework of what we call local government. People ask what we have done about economic development.

We recently received the prestigious “Open for Business Award.”

We created a community profile that has been distributed around the world and throughout the Province of B.C. We have done considerable advertising through multiple forms of media. Council members have attended the Economic BC Conference. We now have promotional videos highlighting our community and have made presentations to the development world. We compiled a lands showcase that has been sent out through the Canadian Urban Development Institute. We have created a reputation as a community that knows how to facilitate development.

With your support I would like to continue to work hard to achieve our strategic goals for the benefit of Grand Forks. Thank You.
