Name: Chris June
Occupation: Commercial manager
Political experience: None
“It's my goal to be actively involved in the community where I live,” June said of why he is running for a seat in Ward 6 Chatham. “This is my way of giving back.”
He sees his experience, including two terms as chair of the Chatham-Kent Chamber of Commerce, co-chair of the Chatham-Kent Workforce Planning Board and co-chair of the Chatham-Kent Leaders Cabinet, as providing a good perspective on the community.
“I am listening and paying attention to the needs of our community and taking their diverse perspectives directly to the decision makers that implement policy,” June said. “Yet, more can be done!”
As a commercial manager, locally, June said, “I see directly the current challenges being faced in Chatham, whether it's from globalization, cross-border competition or the increased need for technologies to create efficiency and improved productivity, the community needs leadership that will go out and actively get involved at the ground level.”
