Comox mayor wants more time to continue work of council
Paul Ives says he is seeking another three-year term as mayor of Comox to continue the work council has begun.
"I am running for re-election to the office of mayor of the Town of Comox to ensure that we continue to work toward achieving council-approved strategic planning objectives (see http://comox.ca/council/strategic-plan/).
"I am proud of what has been accomplished by council and staff over the past three years but much more work remains to be done to make Comox the best place to live, work and play.
"We have improved our growth management plan under a new Official Community Plan and Regional Growth Strategy; we have embraced sustainability principles in carrying out infrastructure works such as our new bike lanes on Comox Avenue and Guthrie Road; and, we have managed our finances in a fiscally responsible way by keeping debt low and property tax and utility rate increases at or below the rate of inflation.
"Looking forward, the Town will require consensus-based leadership where consultation, collaboration and partnership are essential elements of success.
"I look forward to hearing from you as to your ideas for the best Comox."
