Candidate profile: Brian Kostiuk

Brian Kostiuk is running for Cranbrook City Council

  • Nov. 14, 2014 7:00 a.m.

As an businessman and consultant, I have had an up close view of Cranbrook for 52 years.

The last few years, I’ve worked on safety issues with the city trying to make it a safer city for drivers and pedestrians. My position on Council would help this, making the city a better place to live for everyone.

I’ve found that there has been a bureaucratic culture that allows for not getting things done. I set out to run for Council to help remedy this situation.

There are 1,000 accidents a year on our streets, costing us dearly for our insurance rates and liability to the city if they’re not in compliance with, for example, the sightline bylaw guidelines.

I feel these concerns are of paramount importance, and yet are not being addressed, neither by City Council or during the current election campaign.

In addition, I want to see a friendlier environment for businesses and citizens.

We need to get a positive program to fix our roads and make an acceptable tax base for business and citizens by creating an environment for them to want to move to Cranbrook and to start new businesses.

On November 15, vote for Brian Kostiuk for a safer, better Cranbrook.
