Five candidates filed to run for school board trustee, meaning they will all be acclaimed, while Loni Parker will return to her post as Area B director uncontested.

The mayoral candidates are Michael Brooks-Hill, Mark McKee and David Raven. The council candidates are Steve Bender, Connie Brothers, George Buhler, Scott Duke, Trevor English, Chuck Ferguson, Chris Johnston, Linda Nixon, Aaron Orlando, Karen Powers, Gary Starling and Gary Sulz.

Alan Chell, Bill MacFarlane, Jeff Nicholson, Elmer Rorstad and Leslie Savage will make up the next group of Revelstoke school trustees.

Loni Parker will begin an eighth term as director on the board of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, representing Area B Rural Revelstoke.

Voters will have a chance to ask questions of council candidates at an all-candidates forum at the community centre on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. There will also be a chance to speak to the candidates one-on-one at the community centre on Saturday, Oct. 25.

The Times Review will have comprehensive election coverage starting in this Wednesday’s paper, with a first in a series of Q&As with the candidates.
