Adam Walker announces candidacy for Qualicum Beach councillor

The lifetime Qualicum Beach resident wants to play role in shaping town’s future

Lifetime Qualicum Beach area resident and local entrepreneur Adam Walker has announced his candidacy for Qualicum Beach Town council.

Having grown up in Qualicum Beach, Walker has lived in the area his entire life. He currently lives on a small, family-run farm with his wife and their two daughters.

“I am running for council because I am proud to have been raised in Qualicum Beach and want to play a part in shaping its future,” Walker said in a press release.

AS a local small business owner with a professional background in technology, Walker says he looks forward to brining solutions and fresh perspective to council.

Walker sees this candidacy as a rare opportunity to represent the community, one that he notes requires serious commitment.

“I am fortunate to have both the time and resources to dedicate to this long term,” he says.

As a Qualicum Beach town councillor, Walker’s priorities would be community engagement, housing and enhancing public spaces.

Walker vows to “bring energy, focus and a whole lot of patience to council because that is what the residents of Qualicum Beach deserve.”

Asserting that he is not affiliated with any other candidate, Walker sees working together as crucial to the success of the next ton council.

“Regardless of whom is elected, I will strive to end the divisiveness and collaborate with all parties,” he said, noting that while he knows they will not always agree, he has hope that council can work together to move forward.

“My mission is to knock on the front door of every home in this community,” Walker said. “And if elected, I will continue this dialogue in person and through social media to ensure that the voices of Qualicum Beach are heard at Town Hall.”
