I came to Parksville in early 1980 with my late husband. For many years I served as president of the Parksville Senior Citizens Organization (OAP).
The mayor at that time was Paul Reitsma, who attended our monthly meetings faithfully, sitting in the back and always being available to answer questions when called upon. I believe he rarely, if ever, missed a meeting. We knew we could call him directly at his mayor’s office if we had a problem of some sort. He was especially helpful warning us about scams targeting senior citizens.
I am happy to support him for mayor as he never gives up and has experience.
