My name is Mike O'Reilly and I am asking for your vote on October 20th to become your city councillor.
I am the proud owner of Caffe Motivo and have called Kamloops home for over 30 years. I have lived in many neighbourhoods throughout the city. I spent most of my teenage years in low income and government subsidized housing and have a true understanding of the importance of keeping Kamloops affordable. We must keep Kamloops affordable for the people that call Kamloops home.
For the past 10 years, in both my role as the New Business Attraction Manager at Venture Kamloops, and through my own businesses, I have worked on job creation in Kamloops. During the past decade I have sat on multiple volunteer boards and organizations including the following:
Kamloops Downtown Business Improvement Association - President
Kamloops MS Society - President
BC/Yukon MS Society - Government Relations Committee Chair
Kamloops Fusion Rotaract - President
Kamloops Exploration Group - Board Member
My experience in business and leading multiple non-profit organizations throughout the city and province has given me the tools needed to help lead Kamloops. I have been able to bridge the gap between the left and right, the north and south, and the East and West.
