Michel Rabu

Business and council experience

Three questions for mayoral candidates – Michel Rabu

1. My vision for Campbell  River includes:

City managers tasked in acting on direction given by mayor and council in making the right decisions that benefit all of our citizens, sound financial policies that respect the hard earned tax dollars utilized in delivering services, and a balanced police force and fire department aligned with our needs and financial capacities.

2. A vote for “Michel Rabu as Mayor” will allow me to bring my business and council experience, my proven accountability and demonstrated leadership to a newly elected council.

My record during the two terms I served on council under the leadership of Mayor Ostler and my successful business career spanning 35 years in this community confirms my common sense approach in creating solutions to the challenges I’ve faced in my business and professional life and, with the support of the people of Campbell River, I will bring that common sense approach to a new council on Nov. 19. I will be a full time mayor, with no attachment or “political” obligations to large land owners or developers. I will work to represent all citizens and be accessible to all.

3. I believe that opening and improving communication at City Hall is crucial in attracting economic development and potential investors into our community. Economic growth will create badly needed jobs and broaden our tax base which in turn will alleviate the pressure of ever increasing costs while we focus on improving efficiency within City Hall. I will work with council and staff to instill a “customer first service attitude” and remove any unnecessary bureaucratic barriers and replace them with a friendlier “Open for Business Policy.”
