Former Parksville mayor Ed Mayne has announced his intention to run for the position of Regional Director for Electoral Area E (Nanoose Bay) in the Regional District of Nanaimo.

Mayne is a former director on the RDN board and said he has many years of senior management experience in the corporate sector.

Mayne said he and his wife Lilian have lived in the Madrona Point area of Nanoose Bay for the past five years and own successful businesses in Parksville and Nanaimo. Mayne pointed to extensive involvement in the community, both politically and with fundraising for Oceanside charities.

“(Retiring director) George Holme did an admirable job as the director and is to be commended on his many years of service,” Mayne said in a news release. “I have huge respect for George and hope to build on his initiatives for Area E. I wish George and Elizabeth, his most supportive wife, all the best and good health in the coming years.”

Mayne said his goal as director will be to establish Area E as one of the leaders in the RDN and to ensure the community is provided a strong voice in its future which reflects the community as a whole.

“Under my leadership and with the knowledge and experience I bring to the table, we can achieve these goals,” he said. “Area E has much to be proud of and we can be so much more. We need a leader, a representative with the ability to take us to where we as a community want to go.”
