As a Courtenay councillor, Felgenhauer would support small business

Marcus Felgenhauer is running in the Nov. 19 elections to be a Courtenay councillor.

Marcus Felgenhauer is running in the Nov. 19 elections to be a Courtenay councillor.”Nineteen years ago, my wife Sandy and I made the best decision of our lives by moving to the Comox Valley. We have worked and owned numerous businesses in the City of Courtenay and have enjoyed all the benefits of living here.”For this reason I have decided to run for city councillor in Courtenay. I feel strongly that it is time to give back to the community that has given us so much. “Working to maintain and improve the quality of life for all our citizens is my primary objective. I will do this by encouraging new business growth to create much-needed, long-term jobs so people can stay at home with their families. I will set a goal to control municipal tax rates at or preferable below the rate of inflation.”It is also very important to support our small businesses, which are responsible for so many jobs in Courtenay. Finally, I will look at every proposal and every project with an open mind as to what is truly in the best interest of the citizens of Courtenay.”My parents immigrated to Canada to give us a better life, and they sure did. From my father, who went from a pot washer to a general manager of a hotel in seven years, I learnt a strong work ethic.”From my sports career, as a national champion college football player and as a junior football coach, I learnt the value of teamwork. “I look forward to putting both of these attributes to work serving the people of Courtenay. We live in the best place in the world so let’s keep it that way. On Nov. 19, I urge you to vote.”
