Giving Back


As a long time resident, I have had the pleasure of being involved in a number of local projects and events to make our community even better. I truly do Love Ucluelet, and so when I was able to give back recently by acting as the project manager we got the Dog Park upgraded on time and on budget for all of us. Read full article in the Westerly News.During the Pandemic I was able to help organize a Remembrance Day Take-Out Dinner at the Floathouse
Restaurant. We raised over $4000 in donations for the Poppy Campaign “It’s all coming together wonderfully. We had to do something. It’s a way to bring the community a little closer together, be safe and remember our veterans,” said Bruce Faith... Read Full Westerly Article.

Testimonials


Bruce for Mayor

"Garrett and I met Bruce at the dog park, shocker I know. Over the last two or so years, he's become a kind friend who we look forward to having a laugh with at the end of a long day. This past February, Garrett and I tragically lost our home and all of our possessions to a house fire and Bruce really stepped up as a support for us. He not only checked in with us but he connected with members of the community in search of help. Bruce spent a lot of time collecting unwanted household items from families in the community so that he could deliver and present them to us, to help replace some of what we had lost. Garrett and I were blown away by what we received (from dog beds to towels to mixing bowls to spices to spatchulas to coffee)! On top of that, he was instrumental in helping us find a temporary place to live for 4 months which was an immediate and stressful need, as we all know how difficult it is to find housing in Ucluelet. We are forever thankful for the kind, compassionate acts of support Bruce provided us in a time of chaos and pain. Garrett and I are quick to describe Bruce to anyone as a dependable friend, a resourceful support, and an active community member. We have no doubt of the amazing job Bruce Faith would do, if given the opportunity to become mayor of Ucluelet."- Emelie Comtois and Garrett Hansen

Bruce for Mayor

"In March of 2020 when the Covid pandemic was just gathering steam and the country was moving into lockdowns, we were faced with an incredible amount of uncertainty. I had known Bruce for about two weeks at this point. His kindness and compassion was displayed, as he made himself available for my partner Megan and I, and told us to let him know if throughout the lockdowns should we need any assistance that he would help in whatever way he could. I believe our community needs and deserves a leader with this level of compassion. Someone who cares for those he hardly knows as much as his own family and close friends. I firmly believe Bruce Faith to be a thoroughly determined, well-read, and compassionate leader, and just what Ucluelet needs in a mayor."- Brandon Manzardo & Megan Mclean

Toni Konefall Votes Bruce Faith For Mayor

I met Bruce Faith years ago, at Frank Jones Memorial Park, the same place he spends time everyday with his wonderful dog Rex. Over the years I have become friends with him and his wife Jean, Bruce and I have even worked together over the years. My dog Nova and Rex have also become close friends. In the time we have spent together I have noticed certain qualities in him that I believe make him the best choice for the next mayor of our community. Bruce listens to people, he exchanges ideas and then puts his heart and sole into everything he does. He is the kind of person that makes me love Ukee as much as I do.- Tony Konefall
