An active Cherryville resident wants to represent the community’s interests.

Hank Cameron will run for Regional District of North Okanagan director in November.

“I know most of the people out here,” he said.

“I’d like to have a positive influence on the development of the community.”

Eugene Foisy, who has been Cherryville’s director for 20 years, won’t seek re-election.

A forestry contractor, the 60-year-old Cameron has lived in Cherryville for 27 years.

He is a member of the regional district’s advisory planning commission and is involved with the Cherry Ridge Management Committee, which operates the local community forest.

Cameron insists there is a need to promote Cherryville’s rural character while encouraging growth that supports the community.

“We need to attract young families here and maintain the affordability of servicing lots,” he said.

“We need to attract people who can make a living here.”

Another issue Cameron believes needs to be considered is private water systems.

“The things that affect our water on private land and on adjacent Crown land have people talking about it these days,” he said.
