CANDIDATE BIO: Phil Germuth

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.
