Mayor Alan Harrison
Alan is a longtime resident of the community, having graduated from Salmon Arm Senior Secondary in 1977. He attended both Okanagan University College and UBC, graduating with bachelor's and master's degrees in education.

Alan’s teaching career began in Tumbler Ridge in 1983 where, at a young age, he was elected to the Tumbler Ridge Council as a Councillor from 1985 to 1987.

Alan returned to Salmon Arm in 1988 and was elected as a Councillor from 1990 to 1996. Having been re-elected in 2005, Alan is in his fifth term in local government. He has been a school Principal for the past 19 years.

While embarking on a political life and career, Alan also found time to marry his wife Debbie and raise three boys - Ryan, Mark and David. Alan has an avid interest in all sports and particularly enjoys hockey and baseball. His other interests include cooking, hiking, running, fishing and camping. Alan’s previous political experience, teaching background, diplomacy and sense of humour certainly add to his value as a Councillor.
