My partner and I moved to the Comox Valley over 30 years ago. I will always see the Valley and Vancouver Island as one of the most beautiful places to live in the world.
The Comox Valley is one of the fastest growing areas in B.C. – this rapid growth can strain and stress everything from community planning to infrastructure.
We need to set clear priorities both fiscally and socially. For instance, I don’t want to see tax dollars spent on legal issues with Maple Pool. We are a community, and as a community this issue can be resolved.
Also, I do not agree with spending taxpayers’ dollars on multiple trips and junkets for all council members when we can’t afford to improve our public transit system or even provide covered bus stops.
We need to look at long- and short-term infrastructure needs, and ensure we have more greenspaces and parks in our continuing development.
I have been a registered nurse, a real estate agent and mortgage broker, sat on the Comox heritage committee, worked with the Women’s Centre and Courtenay Planned Parenthood Clinic.
I have owned and operated my own business, employing 10 –12 people.
My 30 years in this Valley have given me a perspective I feel could be useful – I am asking the people of Courtenay to let me put that perspective to work – for everyone!
