Don Davis has announced that he will let his name stand for councillor in the Nov. 19 election for the Town of Comox.
He served on council from 1999 to 2005, and ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 2008.
“My vision for Comox is that our community continues to be a beautiful, safe, secure and affordable place for all segments of society to enjoy and live in,” Davis said in a news release.
“My main focus will be to have council reconnect with the community and get more input from members of the public before decisions are made. Local government is the last vestige of true democracy. The community should be able to contact the mayor and council without complication.
“I have proven to be a person who listens to the feedback of the constituents of the town, and have always tried my best to act on their behalf.
“Core services, roads and sewers need to be upgraded to serve our growing population. Town facilities should be environmentally sustainable. Recreation, leisure, and cultural activities should be given fair consideration. Community involvement must include our First Nations, sustainability, and affordable housing.
“We must look out for the best interests of our seniors by improving accessibility and leisure activities, and by upgrading sidewalks, crosswalks, traffic lights and other related infrastructure. I am in favour of a dog park for the recreation needs of our four-legged friends.
“My proudest accomplishment while on council was to make the motion that led to the construction of a new library.
“I have continued to attend council meetings on a regular basis. Since 1992, I have consistently attended as a spectator as well as a councillor. A better record than any other candidate.”
