Marg Grant may be new to the race for council but is a well-known face in our community. She is a proud member of one of Comox’s pioneering families and is committed to serving our town as councillor. As a mother, grandmother and wife with a long history of community service under her belt, Marg offers a balanced approach to our town’s exciting future.
She brings experience, people skills and creative energy to the Comox council. Serving on the boards of North Island College, Glacier View Lodge and Department of Fisheries Appeal Board has taught her the importance of research and talking to the people before reaching a decision.
As the Valley’s first female harbour manager for the Department of Fisheries Comox, and first female Comox Rotarian, Marg has demonstrated that she is willing and able to make a difference. Her numerous community campaigns and current position as president of Beta Sigma Phi have honed her team-building and leadership skills. Listening to and working with people are essential attributes she would bring to the role of councillor.
Paying close attention to expenditures and taxation is a primary consideration. As an advocate of a balanced and sustainable community, Marg’s vision is to build upon the vibrancy in the downtown core with a creative and fiscally responsible approach. She is committed to taking “The Village by the Sea” to the next level. If towns like Chemainus, Coombs and Barkerville can do it, we can too. By creating an environment designed to attract visitors, Comox can become “The place that people want to be.”
We have the beginning of something unique happening in Comox. The essential groundwork is in place. It’s time to build on our success.
