Volunteer declares his bid for council

A long-time volunteer and former businessman is the latest Campbell Riverite to announce a bid for a spot on city council.

A long-time volunteer and former businessman is the latest Campbell Riverite to announce a bid for a spot on city council.

Peter Klobucar, a sales consultant for Comox Valley Nissan, is running for councillor armed with a wish list.

He would like to see a “downtown waterfront market similar to Pike Place in Seattle – open all year round – and the Campbell River pulp and mill site turned into a residential area, park land and marina.”

His list also includes a new library with a computer learning centre, a remodel of the Tidemark Theatre, a state-of-the-art hospital and paved streets and new sidewalks in Campbellton.

Klobucar formerly owned and operated a printing and publishing company for 25 years in Windsor, Ont. He was also a member of the International Typographical Union and served on the negotiating team for the union. He later served on the Board of Directors for the Windsor Craftsmen Club.

Klobucar spent much of his free time as a member of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and coaching little league soccer. He also collected toys and food for needy families at Christmastime.

Klobucar says if elected to council he would work to ensure property taxes stay the same for the next three years.

“We can find other viable solutions to maintain and improve services,” Klobucar says.

He also plans to work with Rivercorp to generate more business, tourism, educational opportunities and green growth to the city. Using his own volunteer experiences, Klobucar pledges to foster volunteer groups that will aid senior citizens and low income families.

“As your councillor I will be open-minded, hard working, willing to listen to others, willing to discuss and solve the important issues that need to be solved in order to make Campbell River number one in growth and prosperity,” says Klobucar.
