There are 13 candidates seeking a trustee position with the Abbotsford school board in the Oct. 15 election.
They are, in alphabetical order, Phil Anderson, Katherine Cyr, Rupi Kanda-Rajwan, Freddy Latham, Graham MacDonell, Korky Neufeld, Stan Petersen, Preet Rai, Mike Rauch, Shannon Rose, Earl Storey, Jared White and Shirley Wilson.
The board comprises seven trustees and the term is four years. Incumbents are Anderson, Latham, Neufeld, Petersen, Rai and Wilson.
Rhonda Pauls is the only incumbent not running for re-election. Earlier this year she took a position with a sports organization on Prince Edward Island.
Two of the candidates — Rauch and White — are supported by a group called Abbotsford Partners in Education, which has a focus on parents being the primary educators for their children.
