Candidate with ‘one-man campaign’ thanks supporters

Dear editor,

I would like to express my gratitude to those who came out and voted Nov. 19.

Dear editor,

I would like to express my gratitude to those who came out and voted Nov. 19.

Although voter turnout was low this election, kudos must be given to those who took the time to vote and take part in our democracy. Thank you so much to those who voted for me, the fact that so many would vote for me is both humbling and inspiring.

Although I was a one-man campaign, I had a number of people who supported me, and helped me along the way.

I’d like to thank my parents for believing in me and supporting me through some of the nervous moments, thanks to Manno Theos for answering any questions I had about the election process, to Larry Jangula who near the end of my campaign was a source of support and inspiration on how to campaign with integrity, and thanks to all my friends who supported me along the way.

Congratulations to those candidates who were elected. I look forward to seeing what this council has in store for the next three years, and I have confidence that they will do what is right and best for Courtenay.

Thank you once again to all those people who voted for me — your confidence in me this election has given me more confidence for next election.

Stu MacInnis,

Courtenay

Editor’s note: Stu MacInnis ran unsuccessfully for a seat on Courtenay council.
