Frizzell seeks president's seat at FCM

Prince George Coun. Garth Frizzell has put his nomination forward for the presidency of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM).

On Monday, city council voted to support Frizzell's nomination. Frizzell has served on the board of directors of the FCM for 10 years and was elected first-vice president in 2019. In 2017 he was elected third-vice-president.

"I really appreciate all the work he has done and will do," Coun. Murray Krause said. "I certainly support this and our community is better for it."

Coun. Cori Ramsay said having members of city council on local government advocacy groups like the FCM does have a significant benefit for the city.

The election will be held at the FCM's annual general meeting on June 7. It is common practice at the FCM that the current sitting first-vice-president runs unopposed for the position of president in the following year.

"Coun. Frizzell is the incoming president of the FCM," Mayor Lyn Hall said.

Frizzell didn't comment on his nomination at Monday's meeting.
