Michael Donegani is running for a seat on Parksville city council.
“I am not a developer or member of any business organization, union or political party,” Donegani said in a news release. “I have not accepted any donations or political favours. I am simply a resident wanting to return balance to Parksville city council with the voices of its residents’ independent thinking.”
Donegani said he has lived on Vancouver Island for 35 years, nearly two decades of that in Parksville.
“My Life and nearly 40 years in the music business have given me a wealth of applicable, and complimentary talents and assets to strengthen and embolden city council,” he said. “For my part, I want to be more direct with senior government. They have our tax dollars and are not returning them proportionately or in a timely manner. I want to be informed and keep you informed to the full extent of my legal capabilities on council.”
“I want municipal wages frozen while a study, comparing free-market positions to our own at city hall, is completed. This ever increasing cost will overtake our budget and take our way of life with it. Let me be a part of a diverse and dynamic council of your choosing; crowd-sourcing ideas, finding more opportunities than challenges. Let’s wake up city council from its quiet past and vote in some new thinking… the thoughts of its residents!”
