Filmer to run for QB councillor

Robert Filmer has announced his candidacy for Qualicum Beach council.

A longtime resident in the Town of Qualicum Beach, Filmer said he’s very involved with the community.

He was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet Program for seven years, volunteering his time to the local legion and veterans. He is currently member of the the Select Committee of Parks and Recreation as the youth representative. It’s a position he has held since 2016.

Filmer believes in keeping Qualicum Beach a small town, a fiscally conservative approach to managing finances, and in giving youth and young families a place to grow.

If Filmer’s bid for council is successful, he will surpass the record of Chris Burger, the previous youngest councillor in Qualicum Beach.

You can contact Robert by phone (250) 228-0852 or by email filmer4council@gmail.com.
