CANDIDATE BIO: Larry Walker

Submitted bio for Larry Walker.

(Running for Kitimat Councillor)

Born and raised in Calgary,  Larry Walker is a mature adult who comes full of life experiences.  I love the outdoors and especially fishing.

I consider myself an avid outdoorsman but some people may disagree with my skill level. In the past I enjoyed hunting upland birds but have now settled into fishing.

I have worked in marketing and sales for a major US Railroad.  Spent 8 years as Manager of Transportation and Distribution for a major integrated forest products company in Alberta (yes they do have trees there).  I even spent a few years working in a federal prison — great experience.

I care about my community and in that vein was elected as an alderman in the City of Spruce Grove, Alta.   I won a seat in four consecutive municipal elections.

My love of this region began back in the late 70s when my family and I would travel by car to the Queen Charlotte Islands every fall to fish for salmon (did this for nine years in a row).  Loved those flights on Trans Provincial Airlines into Masset and the walk down the beach to pick up the car from the barge.

Kitimat is now my home and I hope to spend the rest of my active life here.

– Larry Walker
