Chris Hambruch running for Town Council

Town of Golden: Hambruch, Chris - Council Candidate... Chris Hambruch's self profile

  • Oct. 14, 2014 5:00 a.m.

Chris Hambruch is running for town council.

I am born and raised in the Columbia Valley and have spent the last 34 years living and working in Golden. I was first elected to Council in 1996 and have served on Council since then. I have been on several external committees and boards including the CSRD, Kootenay East Regional Hospital District, and the Mica 5-6 Committee as well as being involved in several local committees.

I do my best to inform people about issues and topics using relevant facts and documentation so that they can make  their own informed decisions. Knowledge is critical for a properly functioning society. With knowledge comes the ability to make informed decisions. With knowledge, businesses are better positioned to take opportunities and avoid risks. With knowledge, society can better plan for the future. Purposefully withholding knowledge from others when that knowledge is relevant to their decision-making is, in my mind, unjust. Intrinsic in my decision making matrix are Community Economic Development principles. I believe that we are better off to build our community from within rather than trying to poach from elsewhere. Building the community from within will in time strengthen the whole community.

I have been and still am an active volunteer in the community in various volunteer groups. I am currently the president of the Golden Rotary Club of which I have been a member since 2001. I have held several board positions in the club. I volunteer in CBAL as a tutor/mentor and I volunteer in the Senior Mechanics class at Golden Secondary School.

I do my best to live my life by the four way test;

Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Life philosophy;

  • The one person that will make the biggest difference in your life is looking at you when you look in the mirror
  • Do unto others as you want done unto your self
  • Be honest
  • We are only here once, make the best of it

On November 5th at the Advance Poll or on November 15 on the General voting day please make sure to vote for up to six people for the position of Councillor.  If you believe that I provide a valuable voice on Council I thank you for your support.
