Roman Miszuk seeks Councillor at Large seat
by Ben Clarke
If you want something done, sometimes you have to do it yourself.
That’s the mentality of Apsley resident Roman Miszuk who has entered the race for Councillor at Large for North Kawartha Township.
Miszuk knows it takes a joint effort to make a council work, but he says he would rather be a difference maker than a complainer.
“There’s always people complaining at the municipal level so I thought instead of becoming one of these complainers I would do something about it,” says Miszuk.
Originally from Toronto, Miszuk graduated from the University of Toronto with a B.Sc. in Forestry.
After spending time in Oakville with Ford Motor Company, he moved to Apsley in 1988 and took over a taxidermy business, which to this day is known as Wilderness Taxidermy.
“My family had property up here so I decided to make a career change,” says Miszuk.
“It (council) interests me and I sit on committees so I thought this community has been good to me so I want to give back.”
Miszuk sat on the Committe of the Whole for the Sissy Tanner administration and currently is on the Community Planning Committee.
As for his political platform he says he doesn’t really have one.
“I don’t really have a platform I just want to represent the constituents and listen to their concerns,” says Miszuk.
