Theodore Pappas: candidate for Clinton council

Theodore Pappas – Clinton councillor candidate

1. How long have you lived in your community?

My wife, Jacqueline, and I have resided in Clinton at the historic Robertson house since 2005.

Grandfather Pappas landed in New York in 1913, and by 1914, he had made his way to Fort George, now Prince George.

My father was born there in 1921.

Our family has been involved in the fur trade for over a century, establishing significant relationships with First Nations communities, hunters and trappers across Canada.

2. What is your occupation?

I am a professional consultant on matters of estate appraisal, evaluation and dispersal. My education at UBC includes science, art and architecture.

I have an appreciation of traditional First Nations culture. My business has presided over the redemption of sacred cultural objects on behalf of their people.

3. Have you done any volunteer work here? Which group(s)?

My wife and I have volunteered our time and energy for the benefit of our community, including the maintenance of Clinton’s Robertson Square.

I have deemed it essential to attend all council meetings for the last three years.

4. Have you served before in municipal government or on a Board of School Trustees? If yes, where, when, and for how long?

I have not previously served in a governmental capacity other than as a taxpayer.

5. Which issues are most important to you?

We must carefully plan to sustain our communities into the future.

For Clinton, the focus would involved commerce: a revitalization of our business core and thoughtful management of our environmental assets, primarily accomplished through the auspices of our community forest.

6. How would you address them?

It’s time to make a difference: honour the vision of our pioneers and the Indigenous Peoples who greeted them. Embrace the present and work together to ensure our future is clear and transparent to all.
