Through a comment on this blog I found out George Sirk is running for council again. He ran in 2005 shortly after he arrived in town and not surprisingly he placed far behind in that election.
What makes him stand out from the other candidates is that he has nine years local government experience. From 1996 to 2005 he served on the Comox Strathcona Regional District board as the representative for Cortes Island. I will admit I have no idea what his record was like as on the CSRD.
