Streeper stays on as Fort Nelson mayor

He was elected as a city councillor in 2002 and has been mayor since 2009. Streeper was voted in by acclamation three years ago, after his two opponents dropped out of the race.

Since then he boasts a multitude of improvements to the city under himself and council, including finishing the recreation centre on time and on budget, improving the streets and roads, creating the regional municipality and the increase of local workers in the Horn River Basin. Streeper ran his own oil field company until 2006 is now retired.
