Meet the Candidates: Henry Huser

Village of Salmo: Huser, Henry – Mayor Candidate

  • Oct. 27, 2014 5:00 p.m.

Henry Huser is running for Mayor of Salmo after living in the area for 59 years. The husband and father of three received an electronic technician diploma from Selkirk College, and has been a self-employed business owner for over 40 years.

The 61-year old has volunteered for a variety of the village’s not-for-profit groups, including the Salmo Ski Hill, Salmo Rink Association, Salmo Celebrations Society and the Salmo Valley Swimming Pool Society.

My wife and I have raised three children in Salmo. Now that my children are older, I feel that it is my time to serve the community in a public office position.

I have not yet held a public office position but I have worked closely with the past councils many times over the decades. I am familiar with the mechanical workings of the infrastructure and I believe that keeping them operating is like a business.

I have volunteered for many of Salmo’s non-profit organizations during the last 40 years, I believe that in a small rural community – volunteers are a necessity.

I am entering into this race with an open mind and a keen interest to learn the why’s and how’s of running a village.

I am sure that there will be many hills and valleys along the road of the new mayor, as there are in all of life’s journeys, but I am up for the challenge.
