RDCK Area B Director candidate – Keith Goforth

Keith has faith in the communities of Area ‘B’ and is willing to do his part to support their initiatives.

Keith Goforth and his wife, Joy, have been married 29 years and moved to Creston from Lillooet in the fall of 2000, where they raised their eight children: Robert, Camron, Curtis, Cherie, Elisabeth, Karen, Joseph, and Emily. They lived in Lister for eight years and then moved to their current home in Erickson.

Keith has been active in numerous community organizations in the past as cub and scout leader, Fall Fair Committee member for nine years, and a volunteer fireman in Lillooet for ten years where he was also their treasurer for seven years. He served for two years, at his own expense, as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Los Angeles, California, and as an unpaid minister of a congregation for ten years. In Creston, Keith has been a scout leader, worked with youth groups at church and is in his fourth year of teaching seminary to students grade 9-12.

Keith is a member of the Rod and Gun Club, has participated in Toastmasters, and is involved in politics in general: municipal, provincial and federal.

Keith has always been an entrepreneur, having started up six successful businesses over the past thirty years. He currently owns and manages various rental units. He has certificates in waste management and water systems and has managed two water systems. He worked primarily in the building trades, but he is semi-retired now.

Politics has been a passion for Keith most of his adult life. He believes: “Those who refuse to get involved in politics will ultimately be governed by those who do.”

Keith has faith in the communities of Area ‘B’ and is willing to do his part to support their initiatives.

If elected, Keith offers:

• Continued support for Area B fire departments and firefighters

• Continued support for the Creston Valley Airport Society – “Life Flights”

• Fiscal responsibility with tax dollars

• Transparency and communication by reinstating the Area B newsletter

• Look into recycling programs, reducing waste and beautifying the area

• Start networking with the various community groups to assess needs and maximize effectiveness of funding and volunteers

A vote for Keith is a vote for commitment, determination, and loyal community support. He will return phone calls.

On October 20, 2018, you will have the opportunity to elect a Director for Area B Regional District Central Kootenay.

The person you elect will have a direct impact on you and your family for years to come. We need efficient and effective government watching over and managing our hard-earned tax dollars more prudently.

“I believe in a common sense approach. I will work hard to manage and maximize your tax dollars for the benefit of all of Area B.”
