I am Don Purdey, Bev and I grew up in Haney----now called Maple Ridge. As I was growing up our family spent time on Vancouver Island. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to move to Nanaimo to open the ECONO Drive – In Store. I have worked in the food industry, construction, self employed & retiring after a few years of driving transit buses for the RDN. Nanaimo has been a great place to raise our family. I have been President of the Kinsmen Club of Nanaimo, K-40, BC Vintage Car Club, served on the Board of the Child Development Centre. I was appointed by the City of Nanaimo to serve on the Advisory Planning Group for Newcastle Island Park. I enjoy being part of the team that runs the Thursday Night Seniors Dance at Bowen Park. I am currently a member of the Family Motor Coach Association & the Smokin’ Oldies hot rod club. We only go this way once---take time to have fun every day. I never planned on running, but when our Candidate dropped out at the last minute, I didn’t want to let down our many long time supporters. I was asked to run. I will do my best. Before I chose to run we only had three choices, LEFT, MORE LEFT & EXTREME. We need a balanced voice at the table and that’s what I bring.
