Re-elect Jeff Shields for Chilliwack City Council
Proven Leadership You Can Count On
About Your candidate
My name is Jeff Shields, and I’m running for Chilliwack City Council
It has been an honour and a privilege to be a Councillor for the City of Chilliwack these past four years and I am excited to put my name forward for another term!
When I put my name forward in 2018, my qualifications included over 25 years as a Chartered Accountant, CFO for a large local company, a diverse background in community service including the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corp (CEPCO), Rotary, Community Services and Big Brothers and a passion for the city I have called home for most of my life. None of that has changed but now I can also add experience to this list.
Experience is more than just doing a job, it is about developing skills and gaining knowledge through participation or observation that you can use in the future to assist in making good decisions. It is about learning from the experts and the non-experts. It’s about empathy and listening to those that just want to be heard. It’s about finding a solution when there just does not seem to be one. It’s about four busy and productive years serving on City Council doing what’s best for Chilliwack. And it’s about having to make the difficult decisions.
Between pandemics, heat domes and atmospheric rivers, the last four years have been unlike any other. I’m not sure what’s in store for the next four years but I do know that I want to continue to be part of our great City Council team, and continue to help lead us into the future.
If I am re-elected, I promise to continue to support the right solution not the easy one. My decisions will always be based on what is best for Chilliwack and the good people that live in our wonderful community.
On October 15, please cast your vote for Jeff Shields.
