Parksville municipal election candidate expenses coming in

Remaining candidates will get their information in during the new year

Some of the election expenses from Parksville’s municipal election in November were released by the city this week

Only about half have been released so far, available on the city’s website ( Among the mayoral candidates, Antonio Farinha declared zero expenses and Richard Honaizer spent just $200, which he contributed himself.

Six of the 13 candidates for council have been posted, with incumbent Marc Lefebvre winning his seat back with the highest expenditure at $2,059. Incumbent Al Greir was second, at $1,755, and like Lefebvre didn’t list any contributions.

Returning councillor Sue Powell, right behind Greir at $1,749, listed 20 contributors, from 14 individuals contributing $40-$50, up to $500 from the BCGEU. Rookie councillor Bill Neufeld spent $1,437, of which he only lists himself as contributing $100. Unsuccessful candidate Peter Simkin spent $1,078 and no listed contributions.

Under municipal election laws, candidates must submit financial disclosure statements including a list of every donor who gave more than $50. Watch the city’s website and The News for the remaining candidates.
