SURREY â€” Former Surrey city councillor and mayoral candidate Barinder Rasode has a new post outside civic politics.
Rasode was appointed to Fraser Healthâ€™s board of directors on Friday and has also been hired as the director of social responsibility at Resource Works, a non-profit society that researches the economic impacts of B.C.â€™s natural resource sector.
At Fraser Health, Rasode will ensure that appropriate community consultations take place, while working with senior management to help guide the strategic direction of B.C.â€™s largest health authority. In her role at Resource Works, sheâ€™ll work with the government and private sector to tackle issues facing resource industries.
Rasode previously served two terms as an elected city councillor in Surrey and ran for mayor in the 2014 municipal elections, but lost to Linda Hepnerâ€™s Surrey First team.
