Kim Craig – Candidate for Mayor

The past 25 years I have been a self-employed Investment Advisor which brings my total experience in the financial services sector to over 4 decades.  I have a broad exposure to many aspects of finance as well as business experience and have found each of these have been invaluable in my role as a Mayor.

Early in life I learned how fulfilling it was to give back to society.  As a member of the Lethbridge Jaycees I helped that group marshal the Whoop-up parade. I was an active member of The Canadian Progress Club in Edmonton and was named member of the year in 1991. Shortly after making Coaldale my adopted home-town in 1993 I joined the Coaldale Chamber of Commerce and have been an active member ever since having served as its president for 5 terms.  In 2000 The Chamber of Commerce recognized me as Small Business of the year and in 2008 I was named as Chamber Member of the year.  As a member of the Coaldale Health Care Centre Foundation I helped that group raise funds for many improvements to the Centre.

I am blessed to be married to my best friend and partner of over 30 years, Taralynn.  I am so proud of my three children and I enjoy spending time with my three grandchildren.

During my time as Mayor, Coaldale has experienced strong residential and business growth.  I plan on continuing to foster an “Open for Business” attitude.
