Meet the Candidates: Ken Anderson

Village of Salmo: Anderson, Ken – Councillor Candidate

  • Oct. 27, 2014 6:00 p.m.

My name is Ken Anderson I am running for council for the Village of Salmo. I’m 66 years old and worked for the village for 21 years. I took an early retirement about eight years ago. After retiring I contracted looking after a couple of water systems, including helping Salmo with my experience and knowledge. I’m active in the community, volunteering about 20 years with the fire department [ retired ], active 25+ years at Salmo ski hill, member of the Salmo Lions club and joined the chamber of commerce within the last year.

The number one challenge would be to keep the village moving forward and making improvements. The infrastructure is at the age of needing upgrades or replacement . With my experience and knowledge I feel I could be an asset to the town.

As I’m new to politics my learning curve would be great. The mayor and council is a team effort for the good of the town. I am looking forward to the challenge if elected.
