Erik Eriksson was one of the first to announce his candidacy for Courtenay council, making it official a month ago.

“I continue to believe I will make a positive contribution on city council if I am elected,” said Eriksson.  “I am retired and able to devote the time and energy required to properly fulfil the responsibilities of office.”

“I believe my experience in serving the community in a number of areas will be a valuable asset,” he said.

Erik is currently the president of the Comox Valley Youth Music Centre, a director of the Walk of Achievement committee and treasurer of the Celebration Singers Community Choir.

He has served the community as vice-president of the Comox Valley Food Bank Society, board member of the Economic Development Society and the Comox Valley Community Foundation, chair of the Sandwick Transition Advisory Committee and he has previously served a term as Courtenay city councillor.

His interests include umpiring for the BC Premier Baseball League, music, sports and fitness, and RVing with his wife Beverley.

“We have lived in Courtenay for 34 years and in that time, with all my community involvement, I believe I have developed a strong sense of where our citizens want our city to go,” said Erik.

“Maple Pool, housing, traffic, fire service and governance are some of the issues that have recently come to the fore.”

“I know I can make a positive contribution, working co-operatively with the city council, in resolving those issues and I am asking the people of Courtenay for the opportunity,” he said.

Erik can be reached by phone at 250-218-0568 or email at throughout the campaign.
