Candidate is passionate about ensuring district leads in sustainable practices

Barry Kurland is running for re-election as trustee on the School District 69 board.

“I’m choosing to run to continue the work that I’ve been doing as a member of the board for the past 12 years, and as an educator in this district for many years past,” Kurland said, in a news release. “I believe in public education as a foundation to our democratic society, and being a trustee is a way for me to ensure that our children have the best opportunity for the future.”

He said his priorities will be to continue the work as co-chair of the Climate Action Task force and continue as the BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA) representative.

Kurland is an organic farmer and said, having lived on a small island without electricity or car ferry for many years, he is passionate about ensuring School District 69 is a leader in sustainable practices.
