A current Village of Lumby councillor has entered the races once again.

Coun. Randal Ostafichuk, first elected to council in 2011, said Monday, Sept. 10 that he will be seeking his third term.

“I have submitted my paperwork to run again,” Ostafichuk said.

Ostafichuk is a member of the White Valley Parks Recreation and Culture Committee, the Lumby Days Society liaison and alternate director for the Regional District of North Okanagan Board.
