Chris Haslett running for town council in Comox

My name is Chris Haslett and I am pleased to announce my candidacy for council in the Town of Comox.

I am both born and raised in Comox. I am a third generation Comox Valley resident and with my wife, raising a fourth generation in our two daughters.

My grandfather, Verne Benedictson, who was also councilman for Comox in the 1970s, instilled a passion in me for our community and a strong moral code for doing what is best for both now and in the future. I hope to be one of your choices on Oct. 20.

With our town developing both residentially and commercially, decisions will need to be made that will shape the foundation of our community for years to come. I am a strong leader with calm and informed decision-making skills. I will make an impactful addition to a youthful, experienced and well-rounded council.

As the town is ever changing, close mind must be paid to keep the community affordable for those with growing families and those on fixed incomes. We should also look to save on major expenses where appropriate while building strong partnerships with our neighboring communities to share the costs when possible.

I believe a well thought out and researched community plan should be revisited and amended to ensure a consistent development model be followed. Comox has drawn and continues to draw new residents and visitors each year. Efficient planning will ensure that our town is a desired place for people to visit for years to come.

I look forward to hearing from you and please contact me at c.chrishaslett@gmail.com or 250-218-8208.
