Ken Grant seeks his fourth term on Comox council.

He led the charge to break the four per cent annual tax increases and in fact, helped get taxes to a 1.1 per cent increase for residential and zero per cent for business in 2014.

Ken was also instrumental in getting the Comox infrastructure upgrades program going while still keeping taxes at a reasonable level.

Parks and recreation are an ongoing priority for Ken. With the completion of the rec centre addition his focus is now on the upcoming Marina Park.

Working with council, Ken introduced and was instrumental in pushing through the Downtown Comox Incentives Program, at no cost to taxpayers.

Ken has represented the Town of Comox on the Comox Downtown Business Association Board for nine years and is a strong supporter of the Downtown Vitalization Program.

He is a strong supporter of Thursday street markets and the Comox walking trails brochure development. A total of 13,000 brochures were handed out in the first year alone. Watch for the Trail Ways Program coming in the spring of 2015, another ongoing vitalization initiative for main street.

Ken has been working with staff to develop marked walking trails throughout Comox.

If re-elected, Ken will continue working on these issues with the rest of council and staff using a team approach to keep Comox as the wonderful community we are all proud of.

“I am thankful to the citizens of Comox for the support you have shown me over the past nine years and if re-elected I will continue to work hard to keep Comox a great place to live.”
