Russ Arnott is seeking re-election to Comox council and is ready to bring his council experience, management skills and positive outlook to serve our Comox residents.
“It’s time to get back to work and help steer Comox towards the future, to find incentives for businesses to stay, and new ones to come,” he said.
“Our marina area is key to drawing residents to the downtown core and I would like to work with the citizens to finally make Comox look like it truly is Comox by the Sea.”
These past three years have taken Arnott from his 25-year career with the Coast Guard as officer-in-charge of the communications centre at Cape Lazo to a new role as manager, Canadian Forces Housing Agency, at CFB Comox.
“We can’t always lean on property taxes to keep moving Comox forward,” he said. “We need to continue to successfully apply for grants and look for alternate sources of funding. To ensure a vibrant Comox we need to invest in our future by improving efficiency and the cost effectiveness of our operations.”
When Arnott served his first term on council between 2008 and 2011, he was able to see firsthand the needs of the town and was able to begin his vision of a Comox waterfront revitalization.
With a second term, Arnott can take the skills he acquired and build upon them to serve the residents by mixing a social conscience with today’s fiscal realities.
With over 26 years in the public sector Arnott is a proven facilitator, negotiator and manager that will help provide leadership and direction.
If you believe in good governance and in protecting and improving our quality of life then please support Russ Arnott for re-election November 15.
