Rick Fuerst is seeking re-election for this third term on council. His priority for this year’s election is to help facilitate the construction of a much-needed water tower, which he believes is the key to seeing Telkwa grow. In the past, he has helped build the skate park and kids playgrounds and hopes to create more recreational opportunities for kids. He also hopes to engage with younger families who are new to the area and get them involved in the community. “I hope people recognize where my heart is, it’s always been in Telkwa and that’s not going to change, that’s what I’m here to do, to help my community as much as I can,” he said.
