There’s another option for North Westside voters.

Eric Von Krosigk will run against Wayne Carson and Marsali MacIver for Central Okanagan West director in the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

“It’s my time to give back to the community,” said Von Krosigk, a winery development consultant, adding that issues of concern are water, tourism and infrastructure.

He also wants to see a continued focus on road upgrades, including Westside Road.

“There are a lot more areas that need improvement,” he said.

Von Krosigk lives in Kelowna. He doesn’t believe his lack of residency in the Central Okanagan West electoral area will prevent him from representing the needs of residents.

“It’s my backyard. I spend lots of time there,” he said. “It’s such an interesting area and there is lots of potential there.”
