Paul Ives will seek his third term as mayor of Comox. He served two terms as a town councillor prior to his election as mayor.
“I have been proud to have played a part at the council table in helping to make Comox a better place, and in many ways, simply the best place to live, work and play in the Comox Valley.
“Each mayor has his or her own style of leadership, but my approach has always been one of building consensus and team work.
“Each of our town councillors has contributed to the success of council. They will continue to be part of the collaborative decision-making process over the next four years. I believe that my style of leadership allows for success to be achieved across the board.
“That, and my continued leadership at a regional and even provincial level, is what makes me proud when looking back at what we have been able to accomplish and when looking forward as we all strive to make the town a better place and, perhaps, the best place in which to live, work and play.
“My relationships with VIHA, minister Don McRae and minister John Duncan have been excellent as have my collaborative dealings with mayors Larry Jangula and Leslie Baird along with CVRD board chair Edwin Grieve.
“I also enjoyed the opportunity to represent CVRD at the Municipal Finance Authority from 2008 – 2011, which has been a very successful organization for just over 40 years.”
Paul has been a resident of Comox for the past 22 years. He is married (Paula) and he has three sons; Matt, Andrew and Sean.
