School District 78: Chance to meet potential trustees

Parents and teachers to host all candidates meeting in Agassiz

  • Oct. 20, 2014 7:00 p.m.

The public will get a chance to speak with and hear from school board trustee hopefuls.

The Fraser Cascade Teachers’ Association and the District Parent Advisory Council have teamed up to host and all candidates meeting.

The meeting will be moderated, and the public will be able to ask questions directly to the candidates. It will take place in the Agassiz elementary secondary school library, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 3.

Election day is Nov. 15 for both the municipalities in B.C. and the school board trustees. In the Agassiz Harrison area of the Fraser Cascade School District (78), there are three trustees. Incumbents Ron Johnstone and Rose Tustian are running for re-election. Newcomers Fiona Delcourt, Cindy Ferguson and Leah Ochoa have thrown their hats into the ring, along with past trustee Marilyn Warren. Current trustee Al Fraser will not seek re-election this term.
