Qualicum Beach Mayor Brian Wiese announces plans to run again in 2022

Municipal elections set for Oct. 15

Brian Wiese will run for a second term as mayor of Qualicum Beach.

Wiese recently launched his campaign at a gathering of supporters, according to a news release.

During the launch, the mayor looked back on the ups and downs of the past four years, including two years of pandemic challenges.

“I am happy to stand here today and say I have worked extremely hard to meet the commitments I made to you in 2018,” he said. “Qualicum Beach clearly has a long tradition and history of adapting to sustain and increase the most valuable renewable resource we have, tourism.”

Wiese thanked MLA Adam Walker and Lehann Wallace, Regional District of Nanaimo Area G representative, for their collaboration on a number of initiatives that affect Qualicum Beach.

“Working with Brian over the last three years has been an absolute pleasure,” said Wallace. “His understanding of the requirement for reciprocity in representing the entire (PQB) area and working on projects and programs to bring services to the residents we both represent has been awesome.”

Wiese plans to release priorities for a second term that focus on the town’s tourism industry.

“I look forward to working hard with our council team and local stakeholders to preserve and enhance Qualicum Beach as the best place to work, live and play,” he said.

The next municipal election will be held Oct. 15, 2022.
