Brian Spain

I would like to introduce myself to the residents of Golden area. I am a young man who has a young family being in my early 30”s. I have two children aged 6 and 8 attending school in Nicholson.  I was born in Golden, being raised on a rural piece of property. I am well aware of the life style and what it takes to be a rural resident. I understand what we have and very clearly relate to what we are in need off.

I attended high school in Golden, my claim to fame in those years is having one year that I managed to achieve the status of top male student (for a while) winning the physics award for that year.  I took that one step further and went to Calgary to attend SAIT studying electrical engineering technology. This took me to employment in Calgary installing telephone systems. I was so thrilled when approached by Telus to come back to Golden and become a Journeyman. I was home in the area that I love. Having experienced skiing from the time the hill was started to climbing and biking in our mountains. I have worked for Telus in the area installing phones and satellites to many of our residents for 6 years. This job allows me to talk too many of our residents and to visit their properties. In my job with Telus I belong to the Telecommunications Workers Union. Being active and outspoken in that organization believing that if you are going to criticize or want more then you have to be active around that to make change for yourself, your co-workers and for future generations. I am very honoured to say that I have actively seeked an endorsement process that is available to all candidates in our present elections. This endorsement was unanimously given by my national organization as well as the East Kootenay and District Labour Council that is active in our area, representing working people and communities from the Elk Valley to Golden.  . Golden is my home and my love. It is the community I want to raise my children in. I want the best for our area and residents. Representation is of paramount importance to me as the voices of our residents must be listened to and communicated in import decision that will affect generations now and in the future.
