Greg Brown wants to keep business diversity

Town of Smithers: Brown, Greg - councillor candidate

Diversity is the key to strengthening the local economy according to Brown, who runs a small consulting company as he raises his two children at home.

“I grew up in Kitimat where the economy was hitched at that time to three industries… The cycle of up and downs is stressful on communities, families, and individuals. Smithers has made choices to keep on a slow and steady trajectory, and looking back on four years from now I’d like to see that we’re still on that trajectory.”

An engineer who used to work in resource extraction, Brown wants to boost airport use, focus on core infrastructure, and have a conversation about providing cheaper rental housing in town.
