We’re happy with Brenda Leigh in Area D

Want nothing to do with becoming part of the City of Campbell River

With regard to Mark Tracy’s and Charles Alford’s comments about Area D and its leadership, there are those of us who live in the area who are very happy with Director Leigh’s leadership and who want nothing to do with becoming part of the City of Campbell River.

Such annexation would not be simply for providing sewer service, as Mayor Jakeway suggests, but would open the door to higher property taxes and any further and future charges that the city could (and would) levy on us – the benefits of which we’d probably benefit little from.

Perhaps the people who are so keen on being part of Campbell River might consider moving there, thus leaving Area D for residents who are happy living here.
