Biggemann may not run

Health issues could end Area F director's tenure

Director of Area F (Coombs, Hilliers, Errington) Lou Biggemann didn’t want to rule out running in the next regional government elections this November, but  he said it would be unlikely.

“Right now I don’t think I will be (running),” he said.

Biggemann said he has been a director for nine years and has some health issues he’s currently dealing with, namely with his back and legs.


Some of the challenges he’s pleased to have worked on include building inspections going through, the completion of the Arrowmsith Activity Centre in Coombs, the RDN’s acquisition of the Whiskey Creek Water Service, the widening of the highway near the Whiskey Creek Store and the construction at Church Rd. and Highway 4A, he said.
