Councillor Tom Duncan officially announced that he is running for re-election to Duncan council.

“There will be some new people on our city council and I believe it is important to have some experienced councillors to provide guidance and orientation. I’m proud to be a part of the team-based, positive, solution-oriented leadership provided by our council,” he said.

My priorities for this upcoming term are:

1. Continue to seek public input as we move to review and update the Official Community Plan, our improved public engagement will assist a new council with more community participation

2. The complete review of Our Strategic Plan. “A new council will bring new ideas, we need to set goals for the next four years.”

3. Engage in work with the community and Downtown Duncan Business Improvement Society to complete a Downtown Parking Study to improve accessibility for our downtown. We need to work with other local governments to develop a regional transportation plan

Councillor Duncan has served three terms on council and has experience on several committees, including as chairperson of the Tourism Committee.

“We have one of the best year round Farmers’ Markets, and our downtown has many unique stores and services. The Tourism Committee continues to implement a solid and successful marketing strategy to keep our community core thriving.”

He has served on the Environmental and Sustainability Committee, CVRD Community Safety Advisory Committee, Cowichan Exhibition Society Committee, and the Summer Festival Committee.

Duncan has represented the city for the last nine years on the Island Savings Centre Commission, supporting efficient improvements to the Cowichan Theatre, and promoting Arts and Culture.

“Our Theatre improvements have brought more productions to the community.”

The arts are thriving in the Valley, “Continuing to work with the Cowichan Valley Arts Council we can provide a venue for local artists.”

Councillor Duncan also represents the city on the Vancouver Island Regional Library board, and is the liaison with the Island Corridor Foundation.

“I will continue actively working to improve and grow our community, building on team successes and continuing to listen to public input and citizen concerns that guide the democratic process of those elected to serve.”

On Oct. 20 re-elect Tom Duncan for Duncan.
