Kiyoshi Kosky running for Courtenay City Council

I am Kiyoshi Kosky and am running in the upcoming Courtenay Municipal Election. I am your progressive candidate and seek to create inclusive policy that improves the lives for all groups of society. Improving the air quality, affordable housing, food security, dog parks and celebrating the local arts are a few of my platforms. I am passionate about the environment, renewable energy and supporting the Kus-Kus-Sum project here in the Comox Valley. Please see kosky.ca for my ideas about these topics.

As a progressive candidate, I have a vision that embraces an inclusive community and building on local economy; listening, collaborating, and creating solutions together. When we listen to our community, knowledge is gained. When we learn in community, action takes place. When we lead in community, positive facilitation occurs. These qualities create a strong, healthy and vibrant society. I take the role as councilor seriously and understand that making decisions for the whole impacts individual citizens, especially since my 8-month-old daughter’s future is paramount to me. I am a leader with an inclusive and environmentally responsible vision; ensuring community health is at the heart of my candidacy. It would be an honor and privilege to represent the residents of Courtenay.

There will be an opportunity to meet me at my Campaign Launch, a family-friendly fundraiser. Come on down and share a burger, some thoughts, and shake a leg to some live music performed by Monkey Wrench on August 22nd at Simms Millennial Park between 5-8pm. If you feel that I am a good fit for your views and are able to contribute to my campaign, you can do so through the website or at the fundraiser. Come together for Kiyoshi, Wednesday, Aug. 22nd.

Please visit my campaign website to check out my platform pieces and information about me at kosky.ca. Get out and vote for your progressive candidate, Kiyoshi Kosky on October 20, 2018.
