A first term City Councillor, Pete ran with the Greens twice in local elections and once in a provincial by-election before getting elected in 2018 with the second highest vote count. Since then, Pete has been busy as a councillor working on constituent support, land use, renter protection and affordable housing, transparency and good governance, making our city more resilient to the climate change, protecting our natural habitats, and supporting our vibrant arts, culture and small business communities. Pete also serves on a number of boards including as Vancouver’s representative to the Union of BC Municipalities and the National Zero Waste Council, as Chair of the Auditor General Committee and as liaison to the Library Board, Vancouver City Planning Commission, Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee, and Renters and Transportation Advisory Committees.
Prior to serving on council Pete had been self employed as a graphic designer and communications consultant and spent years as a community advocate in his Strathcona neighbourhood and for non-profit and community groups throughout Vancouver. Pete has lived in Vancouver since immigrating from Ireland to Canada as a child, and today share his life with his wife of over twenty years, two cats, and a dog. If he had any spare time he would like to be illustrating comic books.
Fry is running for re-election to continue to serve our city by ensuring Vancouver is a great place to live, work, and play.
