Plotniko seeks council seat

City of Parksville: Plotniko, Roy — city council candidate

  • Oct. 21, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Roy Plotniko is running for a seat on Parksville city council and he says it is “time to change how we do things in city hall.”

In a news release, Plotniko said he was born in B.C., he and his wife have lived in Parksville since 1978 and raised two children here.  Plotniko said he worked for 39 years for Catalyst Paper Corporation and their predecessors at the Port Alberni Paper Mill. From 2007-2013, he was elected for two terms as president of CEP Local 686 and in June 2013 he retired from the paper industry.

“We are at a time of record low inflation and interest rates,” said Plotniko. “Yet Parksville taxpayers are hit by tax and utility increases that are grossly disproportional to the inflation rate. I believe taxpayers of Parksville do not want another four years of this. There is a need to scrutinize all aspects of city spending. Services need to be examined and optimized. Any synergies found need to be utilized. Deficiencies need to be rectified accordingly. Its time to ease the burden on the Tax Payers of Parksville.”
