Regarding the sad passing of former Comox mayor Jim Brass:
I knew Jim years ago in another community, Golden, B.C., where we overlapped a couple of years when I was a school administrator there.
Jim moved to town and got involved immediately in our community in Golden, just as he did when he came to Comox a few years later.
That example should not be lost on any of us, particularly our youth, that is: newcomers can connect to their community by immediately getting involved and newcomers can make a huge impact on any community!
If that is a lesson and the legacy Jim Brass left us, what a wonderful one it is!
