Zak Eburne-Stoodley

I am a lifelong resident of Grand Forks and have been a volunteer for as long as I can remember.

I’ve spent countless hours donating my sound equipment and skills to help create the concerts, plays and events in the community.

Now I want to take this passion and love to the next level.

With your support I want to serve on city council and do my all to keep us on a steady track of prosperity.

I have helped many local groups including:

Co-founding Spotlight Films

Boundary Musical and Theater Society

The GFI

Boundary Food Co-op

Grand Forks Fall Fair

Grand Forks Art Gallery

Canada Day Celebrations

Rivers’ Edge Theater

Women’s Resource Centre

Rock Creek Fall Fair

As a supporter of the arts, I am in touch with the community and as an employee of a local business and owner of my own small business I can relate to the needs of the business community

There are three main issues in this years election:

1) Our aging infrastructure

2) The decline of business and morale in our centre core, which should be the vibrant heart

3) Oh dear all those deer

I will do everything in my power to work with residents to make their dreams into our reality.

My motivation is sincere – I have no ties to special interest groups and will truly work for the community as a whole.

I am a team player and understand council must work together.

If you give me a chance, I will work hard to continue earning your trust.

I’ll make sure that everything facing the new council is dealt with in a timely and democratic fashion. Together, we can do it!
