Neil Horner is running for town council in Qualicum Beach

Horner seeks Qualicum Beach council seat

Town of Qualicum Beach: Horner, Neil — town council candidate

  • Oct. 30, 2014 5:00 p.m.

When former reporter and columnist Neil Horner last week announced his intention to run for a seat on Qualicum Beach town council, he threw down an additional challenge to other candidates, newbie and incumbent alike.

“In the newspaper business reporters are told to follow the money,” Horner said. “I think voters should be able to do that prior to casting their ballot. For this reason, I plan to post any donations to my campaign on my website, I urge other candidates to do likewise.”

The key to his platform is simple, he said.

“Council needs to show a whole lot more respect for the OCP,” he said.

Horner said he decided to throw his hat into the ring in order to bring some balance to what he sees as a divisive and dysfunctional council.

“In almost a quarter century of covering municipal councils, regional districts and school boards in the north, Central Interior and Vancouver Island, I’ve never seen a council quite like this one,” he said.

“Qualicum Beach can do better and deserves better.”
