Maggie Hathaway grew up in North Vancouver and moved to Powell River in 1979, 43 years ago. She is almost a local.
Maggie worked for the City of Powell River for 14 years, two years in Administration and twelve years at the Fire Department. She then moved on to spend eight years at Legal Aid where she represented folks with poverty law type issues; residential tenancy, Work Safe, family law and even a little criminal stuff.
From there she was employed by our MLA Nicholas Simons for thirteen years. Many of the same issues she handled at Legal Aid, she dealt with at Nicholas’ office.
She has been on City Council for fourteen years. Her portfolios have included housing and other social issues, communications, and emergency services.
She golfs in the summer and curls in the winter.
