Coun. Terri McConnachie running for mayor of Prince George

McConnachie will kick-off her campaign with an appearance at the Public Library on Wednesday

City Councillor Terri McConnachie is running to become the next mayor of Prince George. She will officially announce her campaign with a kick-off event at the Knowledge Garden at the Prince George Public Library on Wednesday at 12:15 p.m.

McConnachie has been a resident of Prince George for over 40 years. She grew up in the Hart area and after graduating from Kelly Road Secondary School (Shas Ti Kelly Road Secondary), she met and married her high school sweetheart, Kevin, and together they have raised three children.

She was the general manager of the Prince George Exhibition (British Columbia Northern Exhibition) for seven years and built a career in the not-for-profit sector.

She is currently the executive officer for the Canadian Homebuilders’ Association of Northern B.C., promoting the interests of consumers and representing the residential construction industry which includes trades, builders, renovators, suppliers, and other sector service professionals and businesses.

She currently serves as a trustee for the Prince George Public Library, a director for the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George and is a member of the Nechako Rotary Club.

McConnachie has been a Prince George City Councillor since 2014, which she says has required her to draw on her leadership experience to support residents and businesses through the wildfires of recent years, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the challenges that Prince George faces today.

McConnachie said that during her announcement she will share her vision for Prince George and what needs to be done to make local government better.

“As a community leader, ensuring that our home remains a top choice to attend school, grow a career, operate a business and raise a family has always been a deeply personal priority,” said McConnachie, adding that she is ready to continue championing this priority, while building on her values of respect and integrity in her mayoral campaign.

Voters will hit the polls for the municipal election on Oct. 15.
