Roger Kishi filed nomination papers today for re- election as Councillor for the Village of Cumberland. Municipal elections are throughout BC on Saturday, November 15, 2014.
“I look forward to the opportunity to serve another term as councillor for the Village of Cumberland,” says Kishi. “I believe that I have the skills and experience to serve residents of Cumberland into the future.”
In his first term, Roger has been part of the council that has seen many accomplishments.
