Mussell seeks Bowser seat

Regional District of Nanaimo (Area D, E, G, H): Mussell, Donald — Board of directors candidate

  • Oct. 23, 2014 12:00 p.m.

Donald Mussell is running for the position of Regional District of Nanaimo director for Area H (Deep Bay/Bowser).

Mussell said in a news release he has pre-chosen, as part of the team, his alternate, Greg Gingras.

“Greg brings his wealth of management skills, business knowledge and international travel to the team,” said Mussell. “I have recently moved to the area, retiring from a small Alpaca ranch in Black Creek and am deeply motivated to serve Area H.”

“Our team vision is to fully consult with the community before making any decisions affecting our area.”

Mussell said the immediate issues of concern are “the contentious seaweed harvesting damaging the ecosystem at Deep Bay, streamlining the transit system with a smaller shuttle service connecting with the buses that travel to Courtenay and Nanaimo, and the issue of the medical marijuana grow-op, that could adversely affect our aquifer, and is positioned too close to both the school and residential areas.”

“Greg and I will honour and uphold the Official Community Plan and Regional Growth Strategy. With community input, we wish to help beautify the village cores with murals, benches and an information Kiosk to encourage tourists to stop and stay a while. We are the team that will stand behind and support our community.”
