MacKay-Dunn running for council in Qualicum Beach

Doug MacKay-Dunn and his wife Doreen were homeowners in Oceanside during the nineties.

Ever taken with the lifestyle and unique character of the area, they returned four years ago and chose Qualicum Beach to call home.

Since returning, he said has become concerned that the community has, in many ways, become divided and lost trust, believing its opinions are not heard, valued or acted upon. That is why MacKay-Dunn is announcing his candidacy for Qualicum Beach town councillor. Few can match his record and experience in serving his community, states a press release.

Grounded by an accomplished career with the Vancouver Police Department, he has served as chair of the North Vancouver School Board and most recently completed a fifth term as councillor with the District of North Vancouver.

MacKay-Dunns dedication to public service has offered him countless opportunities to make a difference. His legacy of contributing has been recognized by numerous civic commendations and awards.

Guided by a commitment to the principles of respectful communication, co-operation and collaboration, he seeks opportunities to bring about consensus to deliver outcomes that are a “win-win” for all. MacKay-Dunn listens and he get things done.

As councillor, MacKay-Dunn says he will be committed to protecting the essence of the unique character and vitality of our village, its forests and waterfront; to respecting the principles and direction of the Official Community Plan; to implementing innovative housing opportunities; to supporting the vibrancy of our commercial partners; to maintaining “best practice” policies in the prudent use of tax dollars and to providing open and inclusive public discussion with a respectful council.

He looks forward to your support in electing him as a Qualicum Beach town councillor.
