Business owner supports Jangula

Larry Jangula has demonstrated the ability to consult, solicit and receive input from the community.

Dear editor,

Larry Jangula has  demonstrated the ability to consult, solicit and receive input from the community.

Small, independent business does not have an easy forum in which to express its voice.

Small business is a coalition of many independent partnerships. Partnerships of all the people from your customers to your employees, suppliers to trades people and the professional services that keep your business working well.

Included in these partnerships are the relationships that we have with our representatives at local, provincial and federal government.  Our point of view is one voice of many, but we do ask that the needs of small business be considered.

As independent (essentially Mom and Pop) businesses, the sheer volume of challenges tackled on a daily basis in order to create employment and add to the fibre of the community is overwhelming.

Good representation when you need it is so vital that it cannot be overstated. Good representation gives you the feeling you have a partnership with the levels of government you remit your tax dollars to.

As an independent family-run business owner in Courtenay, I feel that Larry Jangula understands and takes to heart the challenges that independent business in the community face. Please support Larry Jangula for mayor of Courtenay.

Jorden Marshall
