There will be competition to be elected to the Revelstoke Board of Education this year, with six names so far registered for the November election.

Of the six people who handed in their papers as of Friday afternoon, three are current trustees and three are new names.

Of the current board, Alan Chell, Doug Hamilton and Annie Wilson, will be running again. All cited the fact they want to see the new schools to completion as a reason for running. Hamilton said this will be the last time he will run for the board. Trustees Jeff Nicholson and Mauro Morrone said they will be running again but neither has filed their papers as of yet.

The new high school is opening this week while the elementary school is scheduled to open for the start of the next school year.

The new names include Elmer Rorstad, a teacher and owner of Free Spirit Sports; Jewelles Smith, a mother of two; and Bryan Dubasov, who said he is running because he has three grandsons just starting school and two granddaughters who will be starting school in the next few years.

“I want to make absolutely sure that they will continue to receive the best education possible and I know, if I am elected, that I will be able to provide that,” he said in an e-mail.

If you are interested in running, you must file your papers at city hall by Oct. 14.

The Times Review will provide coverage of the election when all candidates have declared.
