Collis wants to be mayor of Parksville

City of Parksville: Collis, Dallas — mayoral candidate

  • Oct. 21, 2014 6:00 a.m.

Dallas Collis is running for mayor of Parksville. In a news release Collis said he is 56 years old, married with two children and a small business owner. He said he is morally compelled to speak out about rapid climate change and our need to respond accordingly. “This is the most important community based issue of our time, everything else pales in comparison,” Collis said. “We must begin developing a community based, co-operative and sustainable economic model here in Parksville. That we must begin growing more of our own food, develop local energy support systems and secure affordable and stable fresh water systems. While rapid climate change is a global issue, it must be tackled through local solutions. While climate change is a threat to the world, it is also a community based opportunity to build a more healthy, prosperous and democratic future for everyone. To all of you who were born in the 1930s, 40s and 50s; you are the people who can make the greatest change and do the most to help build a brighter future. We can no longer neglect our responsibility to ensure a healthy and prosperous life for our children and grandchildren.”
