Firm hand on the tiller

The incumbent mayor is doing a find job for Qualicum Beach

The leadership of Qualicum Beach has been in the very capable committed high quality of leadership that not every community enjoys. Teunis Westbroek certainly has been part of the 50 great years to which she refers. Without his solid foresight would we have attained what we have.

His proven leadership has placed our town in an enviable economic position. We have controlled our indebtedness with thoughtful decisions and at the same time looked after improving our infrastructure. Unfortunately there are some factions that would change our economic realities with huge debentures in the name of development.

What do we desire as a town? Realistic challenges means balancing budgets. Our present leader, the mayor, has accomplished this. His personal commitment and selfless dedication is his proven track record. The captain is alive and well with his steady hand on the tiller.
