Election 2018: Long standing School Board Trustee running again

Alan Chell wants to contribute both locally and provincially

Alan Chell is once again running to be a trustee for the Revelstoke School District Board of Education.

Chell has been a trustee for the last 34 years, but it wasn’t until his retirement in 2010 that he began to get more involved on a provincial level.

At the moment Chell is the chair of the BC Public School Employers Association and if he is elected again in the upcoming municipal election he hopes to continue to be involved with the committee and participate in the upcoming negotiations with the teacher’s union.

“I want to be a part of finding the solution,” he said.

As well as interests in the provincial side of things, Chell is an active local participant and proud of the Revelstoke School District.

“We’ve got one of the best, if not the best, school districts in the province,” he said. “I like being a part of that.”

And it’s not only the schools, Chell added, but all of the organizations and parents in town that contribute to education.

“We’ve got a really good culture in Revelstoke of all working together,” he said.

Chell was first elected in 1984. His kids went through the Revelstoke School system and now he has grandkids in school in town.
