RICHMOND, September 29, 2014 - The Richmond Community Coalition (RCC) team is adding two new members to its team of council candidates. Sal Bhullar and Kirby Graeme will be joining the RCC team, which includes Councilors Ken Johnston and Chak Au, and Council candidates Dan Baxter and Helen Quan and School Trustee candidates Jonathan Ho and Matt Pitcairn.

“Sal and Kirby both have an impressive track record of leadership and community service in Richmond,” said Rob Howard, Chair of RCC. “As part of RCC’s commitment to outreach and engagement, we are very proud that Sal and Kirby are new to politics and widen the diversity and perspective of our candidates.

A resident of Richmond since 1984, Sal Bhullar is a seasoned businessperson with a commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of others. She has excelled in the airline industry for three decades along with being a successful real estate agent and yoga instructor. Bhullar is an active supporter of many temples and community centers throughout the Lower Mainland. Married to Avtar who is a successful farmer, Sal is a proud mother of three accomplished children.

“I feel it is my duty and privilege to serve the public,” said Bhullar. “I believe in finding breakthrough opportunities to change what needs to change - like affordability for the next generation, accountability for the elected officials, and improving the quality of life for everyone in Richmond.”

A veteran firefighter of 28 years, Kirby Graeme is a captain of Richmond Fire-Rescue. He is passionate about the community service and sports. He is a fixture in the Richmond’s soccer community as a player, coach and referee. Graeme is member of the Richmond Sunset Rotary Club and has also worked with NGO's around the world providing humanitarian aid to places in need. Married to Sherry, Kirby is a proud father of three children.

“The quality of life for the citizens of Richmond is paramount. That quality includes the overall feeling that our City-- and our families and businesses --are safe at every corner and on every street,” said Graeme. “As a long time employee city employee, I’m running to now lead efforts towards a Richmond that is more safe, accountable and affordable.”

Launched in June, the Richmond Community Coalition is a new community-based organization whose goal is to increase citizen engagement in the municipal government and increase voter participation in local elections. Its diverse board comprises a wide range of community activists and volunteers who have a long history of giving back to the community. Over the summer, RCC held a number of Town Hall meetings attended by more than 100 people at each event. RCC is currently incorporating this feedback into its soon-to-be announced policies and commitments towards a more affordable, accountable and caring Richmond.
