Dan Lisch

In 2001 Shannon and I moved to the Comox Valley; our two girls were born here. We came here for the healthy environment, mountains, seas, beaches and sense of community. To preserve our Comox Valley lifestyle, we need elected officials committed to environmental protection, consultation, carefully planned and controlled growth in rural areas, and reconnection with the people represented.

Formerly the owner of a small custom boat building business, I am now a stay-at-home dad and woodworker. I appreciate the challenges of small businesses and concerns of single-salary families and fixed income seniors.

I have been attending meetings and following issues of the CVRD, South Sewer Project, DFO, BC Shellfish Growers Association and Islands Trust. I recognize a loss of communication between government and the people it represents. As your representative, I will provide a monthly update and regular opportunities to meet. My commitment is to ensure Area A’s  unique concerns and needs are promoted.

As a director of Friends of Baynes Sound Society (FOBSS), I developed an educational website, helped organize FOBSS’s first biologist-guided family beach walk, Market Day booth, and annual photo contest. I have also been a public speaker on environmental issues, volunteer instructor in youth cross-country skiing at Mount Washington, outdoorsman, and active Royston School volunteer.

I am committed to creating and protecting recreational areas and ensuring that pressure by industry does not take priority over long-term environmental health.

My aim is to ensure that planning meets the specific needs of our area.

I am ready to listen to you, communicate your concerns and act on your behalf.
