Krause Acclaimed UBCM President
Prince George, B.C. – Prince George City Councillor Murry Krause has made history at this year’s Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention in Victoria.
The long-time councillor was acclaimed president yesterday, the first time a member of council has reached the post in the City’s history.
Krause had previously served as UBCM’s first vice-president and was the only nominated candidate heading into the convention.
Two weeks ago Krause admitted to 250News that social issues are closest to his heart though if elected, he planned to expand his focus to other areas as well.
“I think I’ve got a long history in UBCM as well as at home around social justice issues and I will continue to make that a priority for me,” he said.
“But I think the reality is of course there’ a multitude of issues that local governments in the province are facing and it’s to view those as equally important. Everything from infrastructure to and including social issues.”
Krause is currently serving his sixth term as a city councillor.
