Moglove seeks second term

Campbell River lawyer and incumbent councillor Claire Moglove will run for re-election in the Nov. 19 civic election

Campbell River lawyer and incumbent councillor Claire Moglove will run for re-election in the Nov. 19 civic election.

Moglove hopes to serve a second term as a councillor for the City of Campbell River.

“The last three years have been extremely educational and have provided me with the experience and knowledge to help make a difference in our city going forward. Everyone who puts their name forward to run for council loves Campbell River and sees the incredible future opportunities for our city. It comes down to who has the skill set to help achieve those opportunities,” Moglove said. “In addition to my role on council, I have been a city representative at the Strathcona Regional District, the Comox-Strathcona Regional Hospital Board, the Strathcona Gardens Commission and the Comox-Strathcona Regional Solid Waste Board.

“This experience has widened my understanding of various regional issues which affect our city – the new hospital and the landfill issues in particular.”

Moglove said she feels she was able to make a difference in her first term on council.

“I believe I have made a significant contribution to council during my first term, in particular in helping guide the issue of a new hospital through challenging political channels, asking relevant questions in relation to a host of issues that faced our council, and by researching the policies and efforts of other communities,” Moglove said. “I have been careful to make sure I have a sound understanding of the issues as they arise, both at the city council table and at the regional boards to which I have been appointed. I will continue to do so should I be re-elected.”

Moglove is particularly proud of her recent election to represent Campbell River at the Association of Vancouver Island Coastal Communities.

Moglove said that going forward, the city must focus on expanding the tax base through economic development and encouraging new residents and businesses to move to Campbell River.

“In my view, the only sustainable way to address declining tax revenues and rising costs is through the expansion of the tax base. I am pleased to say that the city’s economic development arm, Rivercorp, is emerging as a vibrant and hands-on economic development office. During my first two years on council, I was not so sure Rivercorp was the answer, but with a new and expanded Board of Directors and a new CAO, I am confident of its future success in bringing greatly needed economic development to Campbell River,” Moglove said.

“The other overriding issue for the next council is to continue to address taxation levels, reserves, financial policies and financial planning processes.  With a new city manager in the past year and a new chief financial officer in the past six months, we have taken concrete steps in the right direction, but more needs to be done.”
