Mayor’s Citizen Advisory Roundtable

Life-long Port Coquitlam resident Mayor Brad West knows the value of neighbours coming together to discuss their community. Since being elected in October 2018, he has established an open-door approach to engaging the community.

Mayor West created the Mayor’s Citizen Advisory Roundtable to create a forum for Mayor and Council to:

  • hear from members of the community
  • exchange ideas about how to address challenges, and
  • seek input on a variety of topics, from budgets to City projects and community development

Council will consider the group’s input as it makes decisions on matters throughout the year. Participating in the roundtable is a great opportunity to give back to the community and play a role shaping the City’s future.

The Mayor’s Citizen Advisory Roundtable replaces the citizen advisor positions on previous Council Committees.

The following public members have been selected to participate in the roundtable, which will meet three to four times per year:

Andrew Richards Mike Forrest
Brian Wormald Brian Johnson
Nick Young Nicole Owen
Janine Davies Paige Petriw
Janine Melenka Royce Shook
Jeremy Freeman Sean Walker
Joshua Gair Tracy London
Kayla Steele Yue-Ching Cheng
James Filippelli Zack Vilvang

Advisors will sit for a one-year term with an option to continue.
