MLA: Joe Trasolini - Port Moody-Coquitlam

Jesus, we thank You for the leaders that You have as members of the the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. We pray that You will continue to give MLA: Joe Trasolini direction, wisdom and strength as he tackles his responsibilities as an MLA. We ask that You will help him bring new perspectives to the legislature that will see new direction and initiatives pursued leading to innovative legislation. Protect him and keep him in good health. May he experience an extra special time of refreshing during the Christmas season. In Jesus' name we ask this.  

Joe Trasolini immigrated to British Columbia in 1963 from his birthplace in Italy. He graduated from the BCIT Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering Technology Program, and worked in the public and private sector. Since 1985, Trasolini has owned and managed a contracting firm based in BC.

In 1996, Trasolini was elected to Port Moody City Council, and in 1999 was elected Mayor. During his four terms in the mayor’s office, Port Moody has received a number of awards for sustainability initiatives and good management practices. Trasolini was the first mayor in British Columbia to institute a weekly open door session, an opportunity for constituents to meet with the mayor and raise issues important to them.

Trasolini served as a Director of Metro Vancouver, and on the Translink Mayor’s Council where he has successfully secured funding for the Evergreen Line Skytrain expansion.

Joe was elected on April 19, 2012.  He currently serves as the official Opposition Critic for Housing, Construction, and Business Development.
