Mayco Noel is ready for Santa’s arrival in Ucluelet on Dec. 25.

Ucluelet mayor shares letter to Santa

This year has finished up being one of the best of all my years on this earth.

Dear Santa,

This year has finished up being one of the best of all my years on this earth.

I am sure you have heard that I have been chosen to represent the community that I cherish and adore.

The past 100 days have allowed me to be more engaged and involved in the community than ever before.

I’ve uncovered gems in the community that need to be shared with everyone!

My new passion is ensuring that everyone experience and know of these great societies in our community.

This is done by engaging and celebrating what these societies have to offer, not only to the residents, but also to other societies. It’s time to build on what we have.

Some of the things I wish for this Christmas are: pulling the community together and focusing on our local needs, proving opportunities for those that need housing.

Please give me strength to make some bold decisions to move forward on the topic and build the foundation to a strong plan to bring our community into the future.

I look forward to building a strong team with the newly elected to support the administration in executing our plans.

Help me to stay focused and keep on track with the plan. I look to the community for strength and support.

Lastly, Santa, please ensure to provide health and happiness for all the residents in the region. It is a time of giving, so make sure to give a bit extra to those in the community that continuously give back to others.

A friendly reminder, we do have wild deer in the area, so let your team know they are friendly, but don’t feed them. They are not our pets.

You will also find the community lit up a bit more this year, as it appears a few homes and businesses have lifted the bar on Christmas lights this year.

We hope to make our town brighter each year so you can find your way.

Safe travels this season and all the best for 2019

PS, I am happy to hear your flying in as we are experiencing one lane traffic on Kennedy Hill.

From one of your biggest fans,

Mayor Noël

Mayor of Ucluelet
