Coun. Kevin Flynn makes bid for re-election

Longtime councillor announces he will run again

Incumbent councillor Kevin Flynn announced Tuesday morning that he will be running for a fifth term on city council.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed all my years on council and feel I have the energy and desire to continue contributing to the future of Salmon Arm. I feel that we have a great team of staff and employees representing our citizens and I want to continue to provide my leadership and skills to our community,” he said in a press release to the Observer.

Flynn has been on city council for 13 years. During that time, he has been a president of the Southern Interior Local Government Association (SILGA), provincial chair of Municipal Insurance Association and has served on the board of the Union of BC Municipalities.

He says his current committee roles on the Downtown Salmon Arm and the Shuswap Recreation Society boards have been extremely rewarding, adding the new Youth Council initiative is a great addition to the governance and communication within the community.

“I want to thank the citizens of Salmon Arm for their past support and will be asking again for all your support to continue my role helping this great community move forward. My door is open at work or at home to discuss the issues important to you and your family or business,” he says.

Flynn joins incumbent councillor Tim Lavery and newcomer Aaron Brookes in making public announcements about their intentions to run for city council.

Incumbent mayor Nancy Cooper and Coun. Alan Harrison have also announced their intentions to run for the mayor’s chair.
