Save Qualicum Beach

Please save our town. Yes, that is right, Qualicum Beach is dying.

Please save our town. Yes, that is right, Qualicum Beach is dying. There are empty stores, we are losing population and this decline is projected to continue. This scenario will mean additional empty stores and eventually higher taxes.

This could be the most important election ever so please get out and vote. Make sure you vote for a candidate whose platform you agree with and not for a candidate who keeps saying they will consult with the public, as these candidates don’t seem to have any idea what they stand for.

Beware, this year on the ballot there is a yes or no vote for adding two additional councillors. Please vote ‘no’  for six council members. How stupid could this be in a little town like this and a waste of taxpayers’ money to pay for two more councillors that we do not need.

When filling out your ballot, please vote for one mayoral candidate and you can vote for four council members but please only vote for the ones whose platform you agree with. It is better to vote for only two or three that you want and don’t vote for a third or fourth councillor just because you recognize their name. This is how someone you didn’t want may get elected.

Do you want a small organized group that want absolutely nothing to change or happen to end up running our town? I don’t think so.

This is a wake up call for the silent majority. Please, we need you to get out and vote and save our town.
