Submitted bio for Phil Germuth.

(Running for Kitimat Mayor)

Hello there. My name is Philip Germuth but you can call me Phil.

Born Sept 19, 1967 at Kitimat General Hospital, I attended Cormorant School from kindergarten to grade 7 and Mount Elizabeth Secondary School from grades 8 to 12, graduating in 1985.

I was fortunate enough to have spent many weekends with my family exploring the beautiful Douglas Channel.

Having been a car nut for as long as I can remember, I worked at the family business, Ralph’s Service, where I completed my apprenticeship for Automotive Technician. In 1992 I started my own business Phil’s Mobile Service.

I am a proud father of three sons, Trevor 27, Aaron 21 and Kyle 19.

Wanting to make Kitimat an even better place to live, in 2011 I ran for and was elected councilor.

Being on council has been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of my life as I had the privilege of being your voice on council and looking to find solutions to problems.

In my spare time I enjoy golfing and downhill skiing. When time permits my vacation destinations include snorkeling, hot sun and beaches.

I am a member of the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation, Kitimat Chamber of Commerce and Kitimat Gyro Club.
