With the departure of Barb Lines, Jen Woike and Ruth Hartmann, and with John Koury challenging Jon Lefebure for the mayor’s chair, along with Damir Wallener, there are guaranteed to be some new faces at the North Cowichan council table.
What matters to Koury is encouraging economic growth, sustainable development and job opportunities for working families. Reducing property taxes is also key.
What matters to Lefebure is making North Cowichan a prime destination for people to settle in Canada. He’s also committed to the revitalization plan for Chemainus.
What matters to Wallener is listening to and representing his constituents some of whom feel disenfranchised, reining in municipal spending and environmental issues.
