Election 2014: Enderby incumbents in running

City of Enderby: Tundra Baird is pursuing a second term Nov. 15 while Brad Case has his eyes set on a fourth term

Two incumbent Enderby councillors want to continue serving the community.

Tundra Baird is pursuing a second term Nov. 15 while Brad Case has his eyes set on a fourth term.

“There is still a lot I want to get done,” said Baird.

“There is river access and there’s more at Barnes Park that needs to be done.”

Baird says the city has taken great strides to improve the relationship with the Splatsin First Nation.

“We need to keep working on it because they are integral to the community and working on economic development in the area,” she said.

Baird was born in Enderby and she raises her family and assists at her family’s restaurant.

“There’s a great lifestyle and it’s a great place to live,” she said. “It’s a great community and I believe I can help make it better.”

Case is a financial advisor who was born in Enderby.

“I want to see some items we are working on carry through,” he said of seeking re-election.

“I like the direction the community is taking.”

Among the issues of concern for Case are improving the relationship with the Splatsin, economic development and infrastructure.

He also wants to see an active transportation plan proceed.

“Maybe lighting along the river walk could be part of that,” he said, adding that the city also needs to pressure the provincial government on Highway 97A traffic flow. “We want to get a plan out of them so we can plan our community.”

Incumbent Raquel Knust will seek re-election as will  former councillor Paul McCaig and retired banker  Brian Schreiner.

Beryl Ludwig and Earl Shipmaker are not seeking re-election.

Declared for mayor are incumbent Howie Cyr and Greg McCune, a current councillor.
