I am Roger Kishi, and I am seeking re- election as Councillor for the Village of Cumberland.

I am pleased to have played a part in the many accomplishments of the past few years. From the revision of Cumberland’s Official Community Plan, the Village Park Master Plan, which includes the off- leash dog park, new playground and soon to be designed skatepark, and the Host Community Agreement for the Comox Valley Waste Management Facility that calls for an annual $300,000 amenity payment for 20 years and $3million for upgrades of Cumberland & Bevan Roads.

We have a strong history in Cumberland, challenges in the present, and some great opportunities for the future.

I want to work to address the issue of affordable housing & homelessness, and we can begin in Cumberland. That means working with others to come up with ideas for more affordable options for those who are facing homelessness.

Our growth of young families is a benefit as well as a challenge, but with an engaged community and progressive Council, we will be up to the task.

We can build on making Cumberland a strong & healthy community by recognizing our past, dealing with the present and planning for the future. On November 15, vote Roger Kishi for re- election as Councillor for the Village of Cumberland.
