Jim deBolebec runs for Town Council

Town of Golden: deBolebec, Jim - Council Candidate... Jim deBolebec's self profile.

  • Oct. 14, 2014 3:00 p.m.

Jim deBolebec is running for town council.

I have resided in the town of Golden since 1993. Prior to that I lived throughout B.C., which gave me the ability to experience local politics from the very small community to the largest city.

I started my working career with the provincial government working for the B.C. Forest Service, then switching to Forestry Consulting in the early seventies. The last 15 years of my career was managing my own company which I sold in 2004.

I am semi-retired. I currently sit on the Board of Directors of the Golden Historical Society holding the position of Treasurer and serving on an ad-hoc committee. I help with high school basketball. I volunteer with the Golden Community Restorative Justice Program. I was a member of the Golden Age Friendly Community Task Force which completed its objectives in July of this year. I have attended many Golden Town Council meetings throughout the years.

I can trace my involvement with community politics back to my early years when I worked on numerous projects in the small community I grew up in. This led to my being elected Secretary/Treasurer and then President of the local community club while still in my teens.

While living in Vancouver I spent several years volunteering in different facilities.

When I first retired I volunteered and was elected to the B.C./Yukon board of an international organization. I worked in various capacities and put on workshops throughout the B.C./Yukon area.

Volunteering on various non-profit organizations has demonstrated the need to stretch the limited resources one has to achieve the most benefits for the least cost and how to work and cooperate with others where finances are always a concern. This experience will be an asset sitting on Town Council.
