Councillor George Barber

In 1970 George moved from Prince George with his wife and infant son to go to work for Prince George railroad building a line from Fort St. John to Fort Nelson. George then went to work in the oil patch on service rigs until 1972. Shortly after their daughter was born, George went to work for the Village of Taylor as the public works foreman. George found that being the only public works employee proved to be a very interesting job. The various jobs he did included being the building inspector, garbage man, dog catcher and the janitor at the Community Hall. George retired in 2001 after being Fire Chief for 31 years. The reason George ran for Council was because he had experience as a worker but none in the political system. George has commented that there is a big difference between being an employee and a Councillor. Over the years, there have been many changes in the District such as roads, water system, new facilities, medical clinic, library and new residential subdivision. As a volunteer George worked with the Child Development Centre, Crime Stoppers and for over 30 years with Special Olympics. - George enjoys living in Taylor and is currently involved with Taylor Access and Inclusion Committee. He enjoys golfing and yard work.
