Election 2018: Elmer Rorstad once again running to be a school board trustee

Elmer Rorstad is once again running for a trustee position on the Revelstoke School Board.

Rorstad has served on the board for the past seven years.

“My commitment to provide the best possible education for our student has been unwavering,” Rorstad said. “I am fully in support of the Board’s philosophy of funding smaller class sizes and providing additional educational aides when necessary. I would like to continue to have a positive impact on education in Revelstoke.”

Over Rorstad’s 40 years in Revelstoke he has served as the president of the Revelstoke Teachers Association, the chair of the Revelstoke Snowmobile Society and presently serves as the chair of the Finance and Facilities Committee of the Revelstoke School Board.

“The experience I have gained in both the public and private sectors allows me to have a broad perspective on issues,” Rorstad said.

Rorstad has been a teacher, coach, volunteer and business owner. He currently has two sons in the education system and believes education is one of the reasons that Revelstoke is a fantastic place to raise a family.
