Cory Snow has announced he will be seeking the Ward 4, Clifton-Market, council seat in Summerside’s upcoming municipal election.
Snow works for the Department of Justice as a school outreach worker. He and his wife Colleen have two children Brayden and Brooklyn.
“I believe this is a very exciting time for the City of Summerside. This is a great place to live and raise a family, but we can be better and there is always room for improvement,” said Snow.
“I see firsthand on a daily basis the struggles many families face. I am passionate about helping people. I look forward to the opportunity to represent the residents of Ward 4 and would make sure their concerns and ideas are brought to mayor and council.”
In addition to his professional work, Snow is also a volunteer in the community. He currently serves as board president for the Summerside Boys and Girls Club, committee chairman for the Elm Street Elementary School Playground Fundraising Committee and has served as vice-president and board member for Summerside Area Minor Hockey Association.
The next round of municipal elections on P.E.I. is slated for Nov. 5. Despite the five-month gap between now and then, several people have already come forward in Summerside to announce their intention to seek office.
Snow said he intends to spend the next several months speaking with residents in the ward and learning about what they would like to see him set as his priorities.
Ward 4 is currently held by Coun. Brent Gallant, who has announced his intention to run for mayor.
