Courtenay council poll-topper thanks all and sundry

Dear editor,

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the wonderful people of Courtenay.

Dear editor,

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the wonderful people of Courtenay.

Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day and giving myself and all the other hard working candidates the privilege of your vote.

We are fortunate enough to live in such an amazing city with incredibly kind and respectful residents. I am honoured to represent you and I will continue to work hard on your behalf with passion and respect.

Words can not describe how grateful I am to my family. I hardly spent time with my wife and children during this election as I campaigned door to door during the day and worked at night. Their patience and your support made it all work.

Congratulations to Larry Jangula, you always conduct yourself with the highest respect and integrity. We will miss Greg Phelps’ perspectives on issues.

Courtenay is lucky to have some exciting fresh candidates such as Dave Smith and Marcus Felgenhauer. You both brought energy and enthusiasm to the table.

Bill Anglin worked door to door so hard. I was constantly behind him. Stuart Maclnnis, you are a classy young man with a great future. Doug Kerr has a big heart and passion. John Van Egmond and Erik Eriksson, your perseverance is an inspiration to others.

Welcome back to my colleagues Jon Ambler, Ronna-Rae Leonard, and Doug Hillian. I look forward to working with you for the next three years. Great job to the other candidates as well.

Courtenay residents treat each other like an extended family and like any family we will have disagreements, but it is important to communicate with others in a dignified and respectful manner. We need to listen to all ideas brought to the table in order to make informed decisions for the greater good of our community.

We can do it.

Manno Theos,

Courtenay

Editor’s note: Manno Theos was re-elected to Courtenay council Saturday by topping the polls.
