“I will work to create inclusive relationships with residents, community groups and our regional neighbours by promoting the respectful dialogue that is so necessary,” Oates said in a news release. “I stand for open and transparent government and a balanced approach that is responsive to the people of Parksville.

I understand that this job is all about the people. I have extensive experience working with people and am comfortable from the grassroots to the boardroom.
