Dear editor,

Dear editor,

The citizens of the Comox Valley are looking to fill the position of member of the legislative assembly.

This contract position will run from May 2013 to May 2017 with the possibility of a four-year extension. Preference will be given to applicants with no political party affiliation.

Duties will include, but are not limited to attending sittings of the legislature where you will argue and vote to carry out the wants and needs of your constituents (employers). The wants and needs of your political party or it’s leader are not necessarily the same as your constituents so you must possess the ability to know the difference and vote accordingly.

Your primary duties involve directly helping  every constituent in your riding who contacts you for advice or assistance.

Every telephone call, e-mail, text or walk-in complaint must be personally addressed by the MLA. You may hire office staff to assist in the background but the constituents will interact with you directly.

As the legislature sits very infrequently, the bulk of your time will be spent in the Comox Valley, making you readily available to your constituents.

As a caring community, the citizens of the Comox Valley generously volunteer their time to many causes and as our employee you would be expected to volunteer in the community on a regular basis.

Donations to various local charities is completely voluntary but our attractive  compensation package would make this extremely easy. Your devotion to the community, or lack of it, will determine your future contract extension.

Qualified applicants only, apply to Elections BC.

Chris Elliston,
