Coun. Tom Grant in the Town of Comox will seek re-election to council in November.A three-term experienced councillor, Tom Grant is energized and passionate about Comox.“I care about our community,” stated Tom, “and I care about keeping Comox strong and healthy for all our citizens — seniors, youth and families.” Not one to just keep busy at the council table, Tom is a hands-on, get-it-done kind of guy. A familiar face at the d’Esterre Seniors Centre, Tom, wearing his Comox Rotary hat, oversaw the centre’s recent ballroom renovation.This project was a special collaboration between the Town of Comox, the Comox Seniors and the Comox Rotary Club.“This kind of partnership was a win for all involved and showed if we all work together we can achieve a great outcome and use our Town’s financial resources responsibly.” Tom was also selected to be chair of the Comox Rec Centre expansion committee, which oversaw one of the largest capital expenditures in the town’s history and gave the town a building everyone can be proud of.“Our Rec Centre is a facility used by our citizens for a multitude of purposes and now that it is updated, it really does meet the needs of our community.” In April 2011, Tom earned his Level 2 Certificate in Local Government Leadership. This certificate is in recognition of his efforts to advance his skills and knowledge as a local government elected official. Tom is one of only 12 elected officials in B.C. to have accomplished this.Tom can be reached on his Facebook page: or at 250-897-2093. John Marinus, a past five-term Comox councillor and Comox Valley Citizen of the Year signed Tom’s nomination papers.— Tom Grant
