Who’s running for trustee again at School District 69 Qualicum

One trustee announces he will not be running again in Oct. 20 election.

One School Board 69 (Qualicum) trustee said he will not be running again in the upcoming Oct. 20 election.

Trustee Jacob Gair is the only trustee to confirm that he will not be running again, and has said so previously.

“I always knew I would be a one-term trustee in this district if I got elected,” he said, adding that he graduated from VIU in February with a bachelor’s degree in political science and history. Gair said he intends to continue his education elsewhere.

“My four years on the school board have been amazing and I hope I am leaving it a little better than I found it. I truly will miss it,” he said.

The school board’s current chairperson, Eve Flynn said she plans to run for re-election.

Trustee and vice-chair, Julie Austin said she has decided to seek re-election.

Trustee R. Elaine Young also confirmed her intention to seek re-election. “My passion for education continues to keep me active and involved as a school trustee. It is my plan to run again,” she said.

Trustee Barrie Kurland said that he hopes to run again, though stopped short of saying for sure that that’s what he’ll do.
