Luchtmeijer seeks to retain seat on Qualicum Beach town council

Town of Qualicum Beach: Luchtmeijer, Bill — town council candidate

  • Oct. 16, 2014 12:00 p.m.

Bill Luchtmeijer wants to retain his seat on Qualicum Beach town council.

“Three years ago I ran for council because I felt that the town was lacking in the kind of leadership that was required to move the community forward,” Luchtmeijer said in a news release. “I feel that the current council has come a long way in addressing that in a positive way, not always buy a unanimous decision, but by the majority of a council that has shown that it is willing to address even the tough issues.”

Luchtmeijer said he pledges “to provide the best stewardship possible to ensure that the taxpayers get the best fire and police protection, water and sewer, community facilities, street and traffic services, recreation services, and zoning and building regulations that their tax dollar deserves. My top budgetary priorities will be public safety and infrastructure maintenance and will look to partner the town with the private sector or other governments to reduce the costs of services we deliver and will support initiatives to strengthen our economy so that our town will again be vibrant and vital for everyone including young families and children.”

Luchtmeijer said he asks the electorate for its continued support on Nov. 15. You can contact Luchtmijer through his website (www.billforqualicum.com) or by calling 250-248-0837.
