Testimonial

"Rick Glumac is a great asset to Port Moody council. He has a dedicated presence in the community and offers not only a strong voice on council but also a refreshingly accessible ear to the people and local business owners in Port Moody. His hard work and commitment are unmatched and he has a clear vision of what will keep Port Moody the unique city that is it and recognizes the responsibility council holds in guiding this development and growth. As Port Moody continues in this phase of significant growth having a strong voice on council who is committed to truly representing the people and local businesses will be vitally important. It is for all these reasons that we wholeheartedly support Rick in his bid to return to council for another term.”
