Five Comox incumbents have earned his trust

Dear editor,
Municipal elections allow us to reward the actions and behaviours of elected officials who have earned our respect and trust.

Dear editor,

As voters, the upcoming municipal elections provide us with an opportunity to reward the actions and behaviours of those elected officials who have earned our respect and trust.

Those who have shown the abilities to listen and learn, be open and honest, negotiate in good faith, and treat the democratic process and its participants with respect, should be rewarded by our support.

Patti Fletcher, Russ Arnott, Marcia Turner, Hugh MacKinnon and Paul Ives have all demonstrated these qualities. They have brought attitudes of co-operation and civility to the council table that go a long way to getting things done.

During this election campaign, we have seen certain politicians and “wannabes” resort to scare tactics, misinformation and attempts to blow single issues out of proportion. People who resort to such misdirection and manipulation do not deserve to be at the council table.

Please exercise your right to vote in this upcoming election for councillors with the welfare of Comox in mind.

Greg MacDonald,
