Halvorson wants old job back

Civic elections are still 10 months away but the race is already heating up in one jurisdiction.

Herman Halvorson has announced he hopes to reclaim his rural Enderby seat at the Regional District of North Okanagan board table in November.

“I have been approached by several people to run again,” said Halvorson, who retired from politics in 2011 after three terms and who was also RDNO chairperson.

“I want to give people an alternative.”

Halvorson has spent much of the last three years volunteering his time to have a new community hall constructed in Grindrod.

If elected in November, Halvorson believes the level of staffing at the regional district must be a priority.

“We have to look at the whole thing. They have been doing core reviews elsewhere and perhaps we need to look at that,” he said.

“We need to look at the services and see if we are getting value.”

Jackie Pearase, the current rural Enderby director, says she will pursue a second term.

“I’ve enjoyed my time and I would like to finish off some things and do more in other areas,” she said.

“I’m working hard to try and find a solution for Ashton Creek flooding. I have also been working with the Shuswap Trail Alliance for possible trail work.”
