SAANICH — Paul McKivett is the new President of the Saanich-Gulf Islands Federal Liberal electoral district association.

McKivett has more than 40 years of experience as a human resources professional in the public and private sectors in Saanich.

“I am thrilled to be working with the strong, committed individuals who serve on our executive, at such a pivotal time in Canada,” says McKivett. “People across Canada are joining the Team Trudeau movement. It’s a wave of support for change, and we’re certainly experiencing it here in Saanich Gulf Islands.

“At this year’s Saanich Fall Fair, nearly 1,700 visitors to our booth filled out issue ballots.”

McKivett also notes that membership is on the rise, Team Trudeau volunteers are coming out in record numbers and individuals have expressed an interest in seeking the nomination to be on Justin Trudeau’s federal liberal team in the 2015 election.

“We are committed to an open nomination process,” explains McKivett. “I am extending an invitation for anyone who’d like to be a candidate to contact me.”

McKivett served two terms as Chair of the Greater Victoria United Way Campaign and was Chair of the Volunteer Committee for the Victoria Tall Ships Festival.  In recognition of his years of service on Police Boards, he was named a life member of both the national and provincial associations.

In 2013, to recognize his many contributions to the municipality, Saanich municipal council presented McKivett with the “Key to the Municipality of Saanich.”

McKivett is currently a Director of the Saanich Heritage Foundation and President of the Gordon Head Residents Association.
