Marcus Felgenhauer

I have decided to once again seek a seat on Courtenay city council. Having enjoyed the benefits of living in this fantastic valley for the last 22 years with my wife Sandy, it is still my wish to give back to the community. Sandy and I have owned successful businesses in Courtenay. Currently I am with Finneron Hyundai as the senior business manager. In my role as business manager I get an intimate view into the true economics of a wide cross-section of Courtenay’s residents, from young couples raising a family, to seniors on fixed incomes.

This much is clear, as a city councillor I would look at each expenditure as if it were my own money, waste not want not.

I will work with council and city staff to develop a bylaw which would require the redevelopment of empty lots in the city core (such as the old Palace Theatre site) within a specific time frame. If redevelopment cannot be accomplished then those spaces will be required to be turned into temporary park space.

I will work with council and city staff to develop a formula for Big Box stores to contribute more to the cost of recycling the tonnes of cardboard brought into the Valley each year.

I will work with council and city staff to resolve the Maple Pool situation, ensuring the protection and support of some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

Marcus can be reached via email at throughout the campaign.
