Vote Bill Manners

I have been attending council meetings and observing the political process in Nanaimo for many years.  But with an economic crisis causing homelessness for many of our residents, the lack of communication and transparency coming from City Hall, and the Core Review just sitting in a drawer with no action being taken on it, I believe that it is now time for me to stop observing.  It is time for me to step up and seek a seat on City Council and with the help of other councillors and the mayor, bring it back to the basics of good governance.  It is time for me to bring my ideas for a better economy, a more livable city, better communication, better transportation, and much, much more to the table.  I believe that Nanaimo has great potential, and I want the residents of this city to be able to enjoy a higher quality of life.

With the wide field of candidates we have running in this municipal election, it's important that I get the word out to as many voters as possible.  For my campaign to be successful, I need a strong and organized grassroots organization.  Currently, my wife and I have been swamped answering questions from various organizations around the city, building my website, meeting with voters, and designing signs and brochures.  As we are both minimum wage earners, we cannot afford to run an expensive campaign out of our own pockets.  I need help getting my message across.  

If you would like to make a donation to help us get our message across, please contact me at  I can accept donations through Interac e-transfer, or they can be dropped off at any Coastal Community Credit Union for Bill Manners Election Campaign.  Any amount will be gratefully accepted.  If you would like to volunteer to help us with fundraising, distribute flyers, or if you would like a yard sign or to meet me for coffee, please email, or phone 250-390-1800.  THANK YOU
