Patrick O'Doherty is vying for a seat on Grand Forks city council

My name is Patrick O’Doherty. I am running for Grand Forks City Council. Over the past 45 years, I have owned and operated a plumbing, heating and chimney sweeping business in Grand Forks and Boundary area. I know the challenges of running a small business. I will bring this experience to the decision making of city council.

I have supported all upgrades to the city sewer system. I would like to expand it to all neighbourhoods who currently are without sewer eg. Johnson Flats and Ruckle Addition.

I will work for the upgrade of 22nd Ave.

I will support Grand Forks Rotary in completing the water spray park in City Park.

During the last three years on council we have upgraded community wells including the installation of generators. We now have 24-hour protection including protection against power outages. In my opinion we have  saved $6 million. No need for a second reservoir. We have fire protection for the West End.

I will support the GFI. I know the economic importance to the community. In fact I have volunteered at the GFI for 35 years.

I promote the Grand Forks Border Bruins and minor hockey. In fact I volunteered as a referee for 18 years.

I am a member and volunteer at the Royal Canadian Legion.

In closing, I am committed to the voters of Grand Forks. I am always available. I am downtown meeting and hearing what the citizens are saying about our city. It has been an honour to represent “the City of Grand Forks.” I am asking for your support and vote on Nov. 15.  A vote for Patrick O Doherty is a vote for progress and quality of life in Grand Forks.

I LISTEN.
