Ryan Nitchie steps down from Armstrong council
Armstrong city council is losing a valuable member.
Councillor Ryan Nitchie has tendered his resignation, effective end of July, after accepting a full-time position with the Columbia Shuswap Regional District in Salmon Arm.
“I will be the team leader of community services,” said Nitchie, currently a clerk at Askew’s Foods, where he’s been employed in a second stint with the grocery store since 2007. He also worked for Askew’s from 1991-99.
Nitchie starts with CSRD July 2. His last official council meeting will be July 14.
First elected as a 22-year-old to council back in 1996, Nitchie, 41, has served six consecutive terms.
