I’m happy with the mayor

Mayor (Teunis) Westbroek is in his third term of office as mayor, and at the last election he received over 75 per cent of the vote. Obviously, the majority of citizens are very happy with his governance.

I am writing regarding the letter by April McKenna of June 28.

Fist of all, I wish to welcome April to our beautiful town. Many of us who have moved here did so because of the beauty but also because of the proper and orderly development.

This is partly due to the commitment of the current and previous mayors to make Qualicum Beach a place where we are proud to live.

Mayor (Teunis) Westbroek is in his third term of office as mayor, and at the last election he received over 75 per cent of the vote. Obviously, the majority of citizens are very happy with his governance.

Rather than insulting him in the paper,  it would be reasonable to personally contact him and have a discussion regarding your concerns. He is very open to meeting with people.
