Rob Morrison may have won the position of Conservative party representative for Kootenay-Columbia, but other’s who were seeking the nomination will remain active in the riding.
Dale Shudra was acclaimed for a position on Radium Hot springs Village Council while running to represent the Tories in next year’s federal election.
Shudra says, while he was disappointed by the loss, he’s now eager to learn how to be part of council.
“We have a returning mayor and 3 returning councils,” says Shudra. “I’m the new Councillor. At this stage for me, it will be a bit of a learning curve, to get familiar with the issues and where they’re direction was because not it’s their 2nd term to take it there and see if I agree or not and contribute.”
He expressed his admiration for his opponents, saying any of them would have made a great nominee.
The third candidate, former RDEK Area F Director Wendy Booth says that despite not returning to her director position, residents have not heard the last of her.
