Stoltenberg stepping down as director

Stoney Stoltenberg is stepping down after serving six years as a director with the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako.

“There comes a time when you just need to let it all go and concentrate on what’s really important to you,” said Stoltenberg. “Next April is my 50th year anniversary. The last 24 years my wife has been putting up with me doing all this other stuff and so maybe it’s time we spent some time together, just us time.”

He served as Telkwa’s fire chief before being elected as the director for Electoral District A in 2008.

In total, he has dedicated the last 24 years to helping the community

Stoltenberg was also the chair of the North West Regional Hospital District board for the past three years and helped with large-scale projects such as the construction of the hospital in Queen Charlotte City on Haida Gwaii and working towards a new hospital in Terrace.

In one of his final acts as director, he allocated $100,000 in funding to the VIllage of Telkwa to upgrade the baseball diamond at the Telkwa Barbecue Grounds and Dockrill Memorial Rink.

Though he accomplished many things in his tenure, Stoltenberg wasn’t able to pinpoint a specific project that the was particularly proud of.

“I have no regrets. I tried to do the very best job that I could. I was honoured that people elected me to do it and I was proud to do it for them. It’s just time for someone else to take over,” said Stoltenberg, adding he would like to go steelhead fishing, something he hasn’t done in years.
