Dear Dave:

In October MCMLXXXV (1985), my father & I had the distinct pleasure of making phone calls, handing out literature, & holding up signs for the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta Leadership Convention Campaign in support of Mr. Julian Koziak. Hard to believe that its been XXX.V (30.5) years since that event & I was a month away from turning just XI (11) years old!

I have also had the thrill of dropping off pamphlets & making phone calls for his extremely fine son Ward XII YEG City Councilor Byelection Candidate Don Koziak in past campaigns & have enjoyed doing so immensely!

So, as a result you can imagine what an extreme honour & privlege it is for me to have my name on the ballot right next to Don on the ballot as we both run for the same position. I have relatives with a Dutch background including my dad, while Don & Julian & their family have a Ukrainian heritage that they are truly proud of. With all of the Ukrainian voters in Ward XII & people of different multicultural backgrounds, its great to see that we can campaign in a friendly & gentlemanly competition & how immigrants made this province the great place it is to live it is today both through good times & bad!

The Koziak Family Are Truly Great Albertans,

R. Joey
