Nicole Minions seeking Comox council seat

Local business professional Nicole Minions has announced that she will be seeking your vote in the upcoming municipal election on Oct. 20.

Nicole Minions is a 34-year-old real estate professional and community volunteer. Nicole moved to the Comox Valley in 2013 to the community where her husband grew up. Together they decided that the Valley was where they wanted to put down roots and start a family.

She currently lives in Comox with her husband and three children giving her a direct interest in how public services affect current and future residents.

Nicole believes there can be a balance between social, economic and environmental sustainability. The current council and mayor have laid the foundation for a community that people will want to move to for many years to come.

Nicole sees growth as inevitable and its management is important. She sees Comox as an amazing place to live, work, and play not just for the next four years; but for generations to come.

Previous to her time in Comox, Nicole spent 10 years working in the banking industry in a variety of positions. With a decade in the industry and a business diploma from Douglas College in New Westminster, she knows the importance of a balanced budget and maintaining fiscal responsibility.

Nicole has been responsible for managing revenue and expense budgets up to 3+ million dollars.

Nicole developed a passion working with non-profit organizations. She was a board member and then CEO of SOS Children’s Village BC for two years. Working with foster children and families in Surrey, B.C., was one of Nicole’s most rewarding career experiences.

More recently, Nicole was the chair of the Comox Tour de Rock Red Serge Spaghetti Dinner in 2016 and 2017, raising over $25,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. She has volunteered with Royal LePage Petite Fondo, Coldest Night of the Year, and other events supporting Lilli House and the Comox Valley Transition Society.

She is a past member of the Cloverdale Rotary Club.

Nicole wants to focus on the following key areas:

• making a positive impact on affordable and accessible housing,

• maintain Town of Comox Public Services; while seeking out the best practices in sustainability,

• attracting new small businesses and industry to Comox,

• increasing public engagement in municipal politics.
