It is my pleasure to recommend Mr. Ryan Kolodejchuk, who resides in the newly-annexed Wood River neighborhood, for one of the open city council positions in North Bend.
His record of participation and leadership in matters of local civic importance makes him an outstanding candidate for a position on the North Bend City Council.
As you may know, Mr. Kolodejchuk is presently head of the parks foundation, which has been instrumental in realizing substantial improvements to Torguson Park, including the new climbing rock.
I am most impressed with his charitable style of leadership. Boldly, he made the effort to step aside from the limelight and ensure that recognition for the success of the Torguson Park project is given to the individual contributions of all the volunteers in the organization. This is the mark of an exceptional leader.
Owner of Landwork Enterprises, an award-winning full-service landscaping business based in North Bend, Mr. Kolodejchuk is also an avid outdoorsman. As treasurer and active participant in the Upper Snoqualmie Valley Elk Management Group, he brings his expertise in business to help the group work with local schools, agencies and the city, to address habitat, property and safety issues related to the growing elk population.
Our city needs Mr. Kolodejchuk on the council to guide city policy on a path that respects conservation, quality of life and private enterprise.
