My name is Nicholas Adams. I have lived in Kamloops for 24 years. I graduated from Westsyde secondary school and currently reside on the North Shore. I have lived in a variety of the communities that make up Kamloops and have enjoyed the wide mix of people that make up our community. I have founded and run businesses in Kamloops and worked with many great people.
Growing up here I was instilled with a love of community service, helping with raffles and pancake breakfast with the Overlanders Lions Club and the many other groups and events my mom was involved with. I was able to see what our community gains from the hard working men and women who volunteer their time to help us all flourish. As an adult, I have continued to enjoy helping our community. I am extremely proud to have been involved in the establishment of Kamloops Makerspace and involvement in many other community groups and events.
The various groups and clubs available to the youth of our community helped to shape me into the person I am today. 204 Black Maria Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets Program taught me leadership, self-reliance and effective speaking. The Westsyde Drag Racing Club taught me sportsmanship and mechanical skills that serve me every day. Programs like these forged relationships that continue to this day.
I have decided to run for city council because I would like to give back to the community. Kamloops has offered me great opportunities and I would like to see our city continue to thrive.
