Cumberland Councillor Sean Sullivan is excited to seek re-election for the next term.

After serving his first term, Sullivan says there is still more work to do.

“While this council has seen many successes, there are current issues that still need attention. I have served on the Wastewater Advisory Committee for the last two years with a highly engaged group of community members, and the importance of making sure we complete this work for our wastewater compliance is paramount.”

The upcoming referendum on wastewater borrowing is also of huge importance as well.

“This election is special because there is also the question on the ballot to approve borrowing for the sewer. It is critical for Cumberland residents to understand that this is the ‘made in Cumberland’ solution that was demanded of our committee. At half of the price of the South Sewer Project, this is the solution we have been looking for, and I implore the residents of Cumberland to support the sewer on the ballot.”

Sullivan has served four years as a library board trustee and three years on the Accessibility Committee. He has also championed initiatives such as: Cumberland’s withdrawal from the Comox Valley Economic Development Society (CVEDS), which made room for the creation of our own Economic Development Strategy.

The “Grant-in-Aid” program, which financially assists local not-for-profit groups, he helped secure core funding for the Cumberland Community School Society, and was instrumental in the design and implementation of the Coal Creek Disc Golf Course.

“It is with pride that I throw my hat back into the ring to represent the Village, I hope I can count on everyone’s support!”
