Murray Bowers, Councillor

Murray was born and raised in Bancroft and has nine siblings so diplomacy was learned early in life.  He has lived in Faraday Township since 1974 and immediately became involved in the Township.  He was one of the founding members of the Township's Volunteer Fire Department and served for 20 years.

He is known for being dependable and reliable and retired after a 30plus year career with the Ministry of Transportation.  At the time of his retirement he was a facilities co-ordinator but for most of his career he had worked in the roads department starting at the bottom and working his way to a maintenance co-ordinator.  Part of his duties included staffing issues and handling complaints from the public where he honed his skill of dealing openly and fairly to effect the most positive outcomes possible. 

He will use the same persistence and diligence to get the job done for the residents of Faraday Township. 

He is eager to contribute his time and resources to keep Faraday Township the same great place to live, work and play that it has always been.
