The city’s CAO recently celebrated his silver anniversary as a civil servant.
During Tuesday’s regular council meeting, City of Kamloops CAO David Trawin was given a sterling silver pin by Mayor Ken Christian on behalf of the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators for a quarter-century in municipal management.
“I myself, I think like all my other directors, do it because we want to make our community a better place and this is the one way we can do it and we can see it, just as you’re on council for doing the same thing,” Trawin said.
“I’d like to thank you for the opportunity and for the continued opportunity.”
Trawin began his public career in planning and development in Terrace before moving to Kamloops for a similar management role in 2003, which he worked for just shy of a decade before becoming the city’s CAO seven years ago.
