Andrew Commons running for Town Council

Town of Golden: Commons, Andrew - Council Candidate...Andrew Commons' self profile.

  • Oct. 14, 2014 3:00 p.m.

Andrew Commons is running for town council.

I was raised in a working class Mill Town in the North of England. Leaving school at 15, my working life began as an apprentice Pipe Fitter/Welder. Then I worked in a Furniture/Flooring store until at the age of 24 my wife and I decided to start our own business.

We came to Canada skiing as a family and fell in love with the lifestyle, so at the age of 40, Amanda and I and our two children, Samantha 16, and Daryl 15, decided to sell everything and move to Golden. In 2005 we built a store and opened “Kicking Horse Interiors.”

Like many other families we chose Golden because of our passion for skiing and the outdoors, we wanted to raise our children and our grandchildren in a safe, clean, friendly, small town environment. For us Golden is the Town of Opportunity, where you can Live, Work and Play.

On November 29th, 2011 we became Canadian Citizens and so this now means I have the opportunity to stand for this position of Councillor and with your support serve this community by bringing a different perspective and balance to Town Council, plus some good old fashioned common sense. Andy Commons
