Kukler: ‘Bring sense of community back to forefront’

Many people have asked me why I decided to run in this year’s Tofino City Council elections and the answer is simple. I love this area.

I cherish the small town feel that we all love.

That sense of community that keeps us here through the battering storms of winter.

I’ve heard from many people that they feel this is starting to slip away. I want to bring that sense of community back to the forefront.

A few ways we do this is by looking at refitting the poorly equipped Community Hall’s kitchen.

This allow us to hold more local events like potlucks/dances, that will bring members of the surrounding communities together, along with the development of a Community Kitchen.

This will only build more revenue for Tofino.

We need to look at building our own Affordable Rental Housing Units to address the growing needs of Tofino.

A proper community recreational facility, so we can have more sports available for our growing population of youngsters to participate in; while offering activities for those who are more inclined to indoor recreation.

This will allow us to create local sports clubs, which will only benefit the community for generations to come.

Then, keeping with the plans on updating our growing infrastructure needs in regards to waste treatment, road maintenance and water collection.

Together, we can lead Tofino down the right path.
