My husband and I came to Parksville11 years ago and have seen mayors come and go.
We strongly believe Chris Burger is the best person to lead Parksville forward. Chris has a proven track record both as a councillor and acting mayor, has the respect of his fellow councilors; he is passionate about seeing that the new OCP under review reflects the wishes of the majority of Parksville residents and business community.
Continuity is vital, as some upcoming key decisions have to be made regarding securing our future water resources. Chris is very knowledgeable about the AWS and the Englishman River Water Service.
Chris is very approachable and always takes time to listen. We attend council meetings regularly and have observed he allows councillors the opportunity to discuss and debate items on the agenda.
He also takes time to explain to the gallery any items he feels need clarification. With the possibility of new councillors being voted into office it is important to have a leader such as Chris with the experience and knowledge he has to lead them forward in the tough times ahead.
