CANDIDATE BIO: John Powell

Submitted bio for John Powell.

(Running for Kitimat Councillor)

Hello my name is John Powell I was born and raised in Kitimat, B.C. My family has a long tradition of volunteer work within the community, which is something that I wish to continue.

Shortly after high school I moved to Alberta for work in construction/service industries mostly involving pipelines and have been involved in oil spill cleanup, but my heart and opportunity enabled me to move back to the town that I love. Since I’ve moved back I’ve worked on Rio Tinto Alcan’s site doing crane rail repairs, followed by the tear down at Methanex, then did a year’s work doing cleanup of ore spills at RTA, finally doing construction work again on RTA’s line 5.

In my spare time I enjoy card/tabletop games, fishing, going for walks on our excellent sidewalks and helping friends, family and those that I see need help.

Education: journeyman welder with red seal, experienced equipment operator, safety watch training.
