Some familiar faces put their name in for council and regional district area director positions

A few more residents have thrown their names into the political ring in the Lower Similkameen.

Incumbent George Bush for Area B has officially filed his nominations papers.

Bush, who’s lived in the Similkameen Valley almost all his life has farmed, worked for the school district and volunteered at many organizations in the community. If successful this will be his second term as the director for Area B.

Also filing nomination papers, is longtime village councillor Jeremy Evans.

Evans has served on council for almost two decades.

Residents have until September 14 to file nomination papers.
