Bill MacFarlane is once again running to be a trustee for the Revelstoke School Board.

“For over 40 years now I have been an advocate for public education,” MacFarlane said in an email. “As a teacher, community activist, union leader and school board trustee I’ve always believed that public education is the foundation of a strong, engaged, vibrant democracy.”

MacFarlane was first elected four years ago and said he would be honoured to continue in the role. Prior to that he served as a city councillor in Revelstoke for 20 years and was a director of the Revelstoke Credit Union for 15 years.

He has lived in Revelstoke for more than 40 years.
