Tim Roberts, Area G candidate

Roberts has lived in the Similkameen Valley for 38 years

It has been an honour and joy to live, work, play and raise my family in the Similkameen Valley these past 38 years. During which time I have worked as a youth worker, child care counsellor, a substance misuse prevention worker at Similkameen Elementary Secondary School, a paramedic and a committed volunteer.

I have and still sit on many local committees, participating and supporting many initiatives and projects. I spent nearly 20 years on the Keremeos Volunteer Fire department, 12 years on the Similkameen Recreation committee and 13 years on the Crystal Meth task force that became the Education on Substance Misuse Committee. My wife, Vera and I also committed our time to assisting and volunteering in SESS as our girls, Emma and Madison worked their way through school. We assisted teams and volunteered to drive bus for school events and trips.

Today I am the paramedic Unit Chief of the local ambulance station. It is exciting to see our team demographic grow from out of town people staying for a limited time to a team that now consists of 90 per cent locals. Some are long term residences while that great majority bought homes choosing our great community to live in. I am also very excited to be a part of is the Community Paramedic program. Two of us now work hand in hand with our community partners supporting health and wellness while assisting residence as their personal advocates in the health system.

I will bring commitment, collaboration and understanding while advocating for our great community, as the Area G Director.
