Election 2018: Alan Polster running for SD19 school board

Alan Polster will be running to be a School Board Trustee in the upcoming municipal election.

“I want to be on the School Board so that I can help to insure that children have the very best educational experience that they can here in Revelstoke,” Polster said in an email.

“My parents were both high school teachers, so I have a bit of insight into what teachers do and what they need, to do their job effectively.”

Polster retired recently after 35 years with Parks of Canada and has time to give back to the community. Along with his role on the City of Revelstoke Heritage Commission, he thought that being a School trustee would be a good way to achieve that.

As a parent of a Grade 10 student at RSS, he has a vested interest in seeing that funding for education is spent in a wise and effective manner.

“All the way through my children’s school years, I have volunteered in the school; doing nature hikes, sports day and classroom help,” he said.

Although this is Polster’s first kick at local government, he has been on the Heritage Commission for a couple of years and was the president of the local PSAC union while working as a park warden for Parks Canada.

Polster first came to Revelstoke in 1966, lived here in the early ’80s for three years, left for a few years and came back in 1993.
