National business leader and marketing professional Kathleen Bell today will run for a seat on Comox town council.

“I am excited about the opportunity to serve the people and families of Comox,” said Bell. “I will bring a variety of real-world experience and creative idea generation to council. I have a proven track record of successful market programming and business growth, and I feel I could lead Comox in a direction that is focused on families, invests in future generations and provides vital growth opportunities for business and residents alike. I know I’m not alone in saying that I am tired of having to leave the place that I love to live for most everything from shopping to recreational activities with my children – this must change!”

Bell has worked in marketing in the private sector and in not-for-profit cause marketing. She sits as a board member for a medical supply company and is the head of marketing for Subway restaurants in Canada. It is this real-world experience and expertise that motivates Bell’s decision to enter the race for council.

Bell has a team of supporters backing her new ideas for the Town of Comox and is constantly looking for more. She plans to campaign primarily using social media in order to minimize her environmental impact. It will allow her to have ongoing conversations with voters, but she will also take part in campaign events she is organizing.

Bell grew up in Drumheller, Alta., was educated in Nova Scotia at St. Francis Xavier University and has resided in Toronto since relocating to Comox. She lives in Comox with her husband Kris, son Lucien (7) and daughter Elliot (5).
