Vanderhoof: Spencer, Siemens – councillor candidate

Born and raised in Vanderhoof, Spencer loves his community. As an avid sports fan he enjoys watching and participating in local recreation leagues. He referees hockey and basketball starting at the age of 13 and has had the opportunity to officiate several provincial tournaments. Since Spencer has graduated he has been involved in coaching community football finding it important to provide mentorship and be a role model.

“We need more youth involved in the community. At the end of the day, youth are the future and councillors can effect what happens 10-15 years down the road. One of the reasons I’m running is to get in at an early age to make a difference for the upcoming generation.”

Spencer is currently the Executive Director of the Vanderhoof Chamber of Commerce and as part of his position he also manages the Visitor Centre. Originally starting at the chamber as a summer student, Spencer has had the opportunity to meet new people and enjoys his job promoting the town. He says working at the chamber and having a youthful mentality are what makes him a good candidate for council.

Spencer believes in continued education and has been taking night and weekend classes at the college. Being a determined young person himself, he hopes to encourage others to reach their potential.

Although being a new and strong voice for youth in the community is of top priority for him, Spencer’s number one will always be friends and family.

“My friends and family have taught me everything in my first 20 years and are so important to me. I truly value the relationships I have worked so hard to create and maintain and without them I probably wouldn’t be here, where I am today.” Spencer looks forward to being a resident in Vanderhoof for years to come and shaping the community around him.
