Meet the Candidates: Jim Mullaly

Village of Salmo: Mullaly, Jim – Councillor Candidate

  • Oct. 27, 2014 3:00 p.m.

I am 67 years old and I am running for councillor in Salmo.  I have lived in the Salmo area for more than 26 years.  In the past year I have attended most council and Committee of the Whole meetings. I have found that there have been many discussions that need public input that are being made behind closed doors and money is being spent without public knowledge. I have over 40 years experience running small businesses and many years doing volunteer work and sitting as a director for a non-profit society.

In my opinion, governments are elected as a management team to run the businesses of the people (tax payers) in a fiscally responsible way, not raise taxes to buy unneeded toys or trips.

Salmo needs people that can work together to get things done – not sit and argue over the spelling of a word. My mission is to see Salmo prosper, not lose local businesses, but support them and not tax people out of their homes.
