School District 52 Trustee Forum set for Monday

While probably not as a high profile as the race for the Mayoralty or City Council seats, the election for trustees for School District 52 is a race that does warrant a share of our attention.

Particularly as education on the North Coast is a topic that in the past has generated a great deal of interest and at times emotion.

A chance to learn more about what the ten Prince Rupert candidates for School District 52 would bring towards the Education debate in the community, comes up on Monday evening with a Candidates Question and Answer forum.

The election event takes place at Charles Hays Secondary School starting at 6 PM on November 3rd.

Hosted jointly by the Prince Rupert District Teachers Union and The Prince Rupert District Parent Advisory Council, it's an evening which could provide an opportunity for those who are looking to address issues and learn more about a wide range of items related to education on the North Coast.

This years School District election features four incumbents seeking a return to office: Tina Last, Bart Kuntz, Terri-Lynn Huddlestone and Lousia Sanchez.

Challenging them for positions on the Council will be soon to be former City Councillor Judy Carlick-Pearson, James Horne, June Lewis, Fanny Nelson, William Spat and Kimberly Williams.

Six positions from Prince Rupert will be filled on November 15th, while the one rural position already has been claimed, as Janet Beil ran unopposed for that seat.
