CIVIC ELECTION 2014 — The redevelopment of the North Shore, making Kamloops the “Business-Friendly Capital of Canada, and attracting more family doctors are the three main goals of the newest candidate for Kamloops City council.
Mike O’Reilly announced his candidacy at a media conference today (Monday) at a Fortune Drive parking lot.
O’Reilly, who has lived in Kamloops for 26 years, said he made the decision to run after careful consideration.
He spent four years as the business attraction manager for Venture Kamloops and is now in the television industry.
O’Reilly said he “has a keen sense of what businesses are looking for when considering a municipality to invest in, and the work ethic and follow-through to get things done.”
He sits on the boards of the MS Society, Kamloops Exploration Group, and the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association.
O’Reilly has set up a website for his “Our city, our time” election platform at http://www.oreilly2014.com.
