Trevor Bolin running for another term

He says he wants to continue making the changes he set out to three years ago.

"The feedback I've heard is that those changes are widely accepted and there's more work to do. We can't stop now, we've got things going on the track and we need to keep on going and keep on working."

That includes maintaining the fiscal responsibility and management he believes council has shown over the past three years in keeping services going and taxes where they are, even if that means tweaking some spending.

As the owner of real estate agencies in Chetwynd, Dawson Creek and Fort St. John, Bolin thinks his business background gives him a bit of an edge on council. He says he's able to bring a perspective on land and leasing perspectives, and how they could potentially save money.

"We need to look at what we have before we look at how much money we spend. That's one of the biggest thing we've done these past three years and we need to keep on that same path of ensuring the services, the funding and the families are always there and always going to be here."

Regardless of who makes up next year's council, Bolin says they need to come together to work towards a common goal. He says it's not a right to be on council, it's a privilege.

There are currently four other people in the running for spots as councillors, including two other current councillors, a school board trustee and a theatre manager. Those interested in running have until Friday, October 14  to hand in their nominations.
