Veteran politician hopes to lock in council seat

District of Coldstream: Pat Cochrane looks to retain seat on council

Veteran politician Pat Cochrane is looking to retain his seat on Coldstream council.

For two-term Coldstream councillor Pat Cochrane, who has another 12 years experience on Vernon council, it was an easy decision to run again.

“I am running again because I truly enjoy the job,” said Cochrane, who has been a resident of Coldstream for 21 years. “I believe I can contribute positively to resolving any issue that Coldstream council has to deal with over the next four years.”

Cochrane, 60, owns Vernon Lock and Safe with his wife of 32 years, whom with he raised two boys.

He is eager to continue his service with a seat on council.

“It has been a privilege working with Mayor Garlick and the current councillors to manage the business of Coldstream on behalf of its citizens.”
