Catholic journalist takes a run at politics

Regular B.C. Catholic readers likely know Terry O'Neill. He's a frequent contributor whose journalistic resume is almost as long as his Catholic pedigree. He has written for the National Catholic Register, the Interim, and Catholic Insight, hosted RoadKill Radio, was editor of B.C. Report magazine and was senior writer of the Western Standard. He's active at St. Joseph's Parish in Port Moody, chairing the finance committee, organizing life-affirming events like the Easter Flower distribution, singing in the church choir for 17 years, and serving as a lector for almost as long. He used to be vice-chair of the education committee at Archbishop Carney secondary and sits on the boards of the Coquitlam Foundation and of Signal Hill. Clearly the guy has too much time on his hands, so now he's running for Coquitlam City council in the May 15 by-election. We try to stay out of partisan politics here at The Busy Catholic, but if you want to find out more about Terry's campaign you can check him out here.
