About Me

Nancy McCurrach

     My name is Nancy McCurrach; I have been blessed to live in Port Coquitlam for twenty-five years with my husband Ray, where we have raised our four children; Katrina, Monica, Jackie and Bill along with our golden retriever Shelby. I have been employed in the telecommunications industry for over two decades and work currently in the Loyalty and Retention department for a cellular phone provider. I have extensive experience in communication skills, technology, negotiating and working on solutions.


     Our last name “McCurrach” is well recognized in the community in hockey, lacrosse, fast pitch, musical theatre, highland dancing, gymnastics, volunteering and Big Brother Canada. 


     `In 2014 I ran for a spot on City Council and had the distinct pleasure of knocking on hundreds of doors. I listened to your concerns. Although my first time running was unsuccessful it gave me knowledge, experience and the strong desire to run again in 2018.  I want to thank everyone who has given me encouragement and support to run again. I look forward to reconnecting with the wonderful people in my community as I make my rounds door knocking.  I truly enjoy meeting everyone face to face, hearing their concerns, why they like POCO and what they would like to see happen in their community. As a committed activist in the community I am passionate about making your voice heard on Port Coquitlam City Council.  Port Coquitlam is an amazing city; we need to find solutions to build a more affordable, safer, healthy, sustainable community. I urge you to connect with me. I want to hear what you have to say.

 

     I have been continuously dedicated and active in the community. I was humbled to receive the prestigious International Jefferson Award for Outstanding Public Service as Founder of the Tri-City Refugee Welcome Wagon and for Community Volunteerism last year, as well Volunteer of the Year for the City of Port Coquiltam 2017 in the category of Safety and Caring.   I have regularly attended council and city committee meetings as your citizen’s advisor on both the Smart Growth & then the Transportation Solutions & Public Works Committees for the last 7 years. I have gained a great deal of knowledge on process and I am familiar with many issues in the community. Port Coquitlam citizens are saying they want to see more women on city council. If elected I promise to work hard for you on council. Together we can make a meaningful difference for our families, our community and for the future. It would be an honour and a privilege to serve the citizens of Port Coquitlam as your City Councillor.
