Chester running for seat on Comox council

An Air Force veteran with more than 42 years of service intends to run for councillor in the  Comox municipal election.

Terry Chester has been involved in numerous community activities since his retirement, including the Comox Valley Community Foundation, the B.C. Senior Games, the annual Walk for Memories for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. and previous Comox Town Anniversary celebrations.

Chester is also very active in the Comox Air Force Museum and the Spitfire project at the base.

Chester wants to turn his energies toward the future of the beautiful town of Comox, and he believes he can bring a fresh outlook to council meetings.

"I would also like to bring the perspective of the seniors' community to council," he said. "Seniors represent a significant portion of the population but have never really had a voice on council. I'd like to fix that."

Chester is setting up a website at, where he welcomes your input. It contains a blog where you can state your opinions about Comox matters directly to Chester.
