My Tech Guys owner and “Extreme Geek” Bob Wells is running for Courtenay city council.

“The City suing Maple Pool to evict its residents forced me to act now,” says Bob.

“This is a defining moment in our city’s history and action must be taken now to stop the lawsuit so that a real solution can be worked towards in partnership with all stakeholders. I cannot understand how the city can think that it can work in good faith with Maple Pool while pushing forward with their lawsuit against them.

“A vote for me is a vote for the residents of Maple Pool.”

Bob is best known as owner of the award-winning My Tech Guys Inc., a local technology company employing 15 people.

Bob has also worked tirelessly for organizations like CYMC, Y.A.N.A., Child Development, Habitat for Humanity, MusicFest and Rotary.

He has proven to be an effective leader, not only creating effective policies and procedures, but by holding everyone accountable for their actions.

His positive management style has resulted in winning several awards including BC’s Top 40 Under 40, BC Fastest Growing Company and the Comox Valley Small Business of the Year.

Bob has given the keynote address at the Sauder School of Business International Business Conference, and been a guest speaker for high schools and other Valley organizations.

“I am confident my experience, passion and energy makes me the best candidate for Courtenay city council. I have a proven record of successful leadership and working towards a better community.  Vote for me on November 15.”

Bob can be reached at 250-792-1945 or votebobwells@gmail.com throughout the campaign.
