Jampolsky named city rep on YVR’s board
Richmond’s Howard Jampolsky has been named the City of Richmond’s representative on the board of the Vancouver International Airport Authority.
Jampolsky is a licensed private pilot and has served on a number of civic committees, including the City of Richmond’s economic advisory committee and the intercultural advisory committee. He was also chair of the Richmond Airport Noise Citizens Advisory Task Force.
Jampolsky’s appointment is for a three-year term.
He replaces Peter Dhillon, who served the maximum of two consecutive terms as the city’s representative.
“Vancouver International Airport is by far the largest single economic generator in our city,” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said. “It is home to more than 23,000 direct local jobs and thousands of other local jobs and businesses are dependent on the airport for their livelihood.
“Most importantly, it is our gateway to the world, allowing Richmond to truly be an international centre for trade, commerce and tourism.”
