Representatives run in elections for regional district, school trustees

Regional District Director Rob Newell will run again in RDBN elections this fall to "move forward long-term objectives already started."

Regional District Director Rob Newell will run again in RDBN elections this fall.

“There were two major reasons why I ran for election originally. The first being that this region and this area specifically has the potential to provide a future for our children and grandchildren. The second, that with my business background I could help build a vibrant, diverse and sustainable regional economy,” Newell said.

“Over the past three years I believe I have achieved the short term goals. However, in order to move forward and establish the long term objectives already started, I will be letting my name stand for another term.”

In the elections for school trustees, Les Kearns said he will run again.

A trustee for the last nine years, Kearns says he’s not ready to fully retire.

“I think that I’ve got lots of experience both as a trustee and in the education field, and I think I can still contribute to the school system,” he says.

Current Trustee Sheryl Yaremco was out of town and could not be reached by press deadline.
