Candidate Currie wants more resident participation in City decisions

Released by Linda Drummond for Brenda Currie


renda Currie, savvy business woman and lifetime resident of Chilliwack declared her candidacy for Chilliwack City Council last Thursday.


"As a city councilor I can cultivate hope for a prosperous, safe future for all Chilliwack residents. I support job creation and will work with all organizations that facilitate the drawing small, medium and large businesses to Chilliwack while supporting businesses that are already here," said Currie in a release on Tuesday.


She is ready to represent the people of Chilliwack to help them realize your goals of being heard and to be a part of the city’s decision-making process. Her common sense approach to her life is something that she intends to draw on to when finding creative solutions to city challenges.


"I wish to promote a safer environment by working with the Community Policing Service and Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy," she says.


Together with husband Keith Currie, Brenda has three sons and a grandson. She has had 24-year career as a Realtor at Homelife Glenayre Realty and has an in-depth knowledge of all the areas of Chilliwack District and its zoning bylaws and has chaired bylaw committees for other organizations. Her familiarity with the Chilliwack official Community Plan and personal knowledge of housing challenges and commercial development will be an asset for our City Council.


"As a lifelong member of this community, it would be my honor to act as your voice in city hall. I ask for your support and your vote on November 15th," says Currie.


Brenda is an impassioned fund raiser and ardently organizes events to raise awareness and funding for various causes including youth sports and is supportive of all community sports, charities and non-profit organizations and has represented many of these at the local and provincial levels and has been a director on many boards. We need enthusiastic, compassionate leadership that is willing to become involved and Brenda has that in abundance.
