Candidate profile: Tim Thatcher

Tim Thatcher is running for a position on Rossland city council.

I was fortunate to be born and raised in Rossland. With my wife Karen we raised two sons and have a granddaughter growing up here.

I have worked at Teck for 37 years, 33 of them with the fire dept. I have been with the Rossland Volunteer Fire Department for 23 years, Assistant Chief since 1994, spent 32 years on the Red Mountain Ski Patrol, eight years on the Rossland Ambulance and served 3 terms on the board of directors for the Warfield Credit Union.

I have contemplated running for council for years. There is a major project and other pressing issues before council, that is going to require some difficult decisions, and I feel now is the time to get involved. It is going to take co-operation and respect amongst all members of to council, to achieve positive results for the community. Council has to insure that tax money is directed and spent on essentials needs.

Rossland’s taxes are high enough, we don’t want to drive out our seniors or be unattractive for new families or businesses.

With my involvement and commitment to the community in the past, I feel I would bring a positive influence to city council. Thank you for your consideration. Please vote on Nov. 19th.
