A Kimberley man with a military background hopes to translate those skills to a city councillor role.
Kyle Dalum is running for city council in next month’s election.
He says his military background would translate well into a city councillor role.
“The military is something where you definitely have to work as a team and you have to work as an individual,” Dalum says. “You have to be able to handle the stress of those roles, so I think it applies to just about anywhere in life.”
Dalum says his three years of service showed him the importance of working with others as a functioning group.
He says the city’s housing crunch is one of the bigger issues council needs to tackle over the next four years.
“Housing is certainly a large issue and how to sustainably move forward with maintaining a small town while having the growth happen at a rate that we can really handle,” Dalum says.
Dalum has been attending city council meetings regularly for the past year which he says has given him a strong understanding of what issues the city has been working on.
The election happens October 20th.
