FRANK REGEHR Pen­tic­ton

The Daily Courier - - OKANAGAN -

It’s not of­ten you get the chance to elect a re­tired pub­lic-sec­tor fi­nance pro­fes­sional to city coun­cil, but that’s the op­por­tu­nity in front of Pen­tic­ton vot­ers who will see the name Frank Regehr on their bal­lots.

He re­tired in 2010 af­ter serv­ing 22 years as sec­re­tary-trea­surer for the Okana­gan Skaha school dis­trict and its pre­de­ces­sors, and more re­cently has be­come one of city coun­cil’s sharpest watch­dogs by an­a­lyz­ing an­nual bud­gets.

It’s quite pos­si­ble he al­ready un­der­stands city fi­nances bet­ter than any­one on the present city coun­cil. If elected, staff wouldn’t be able to BS him. In ad­di­tion to his fi­nan­cial pedi­gree, he’s also cam­paigned on com­mit­ments to parks, arts and cul­ture and find­ing a way to get satel­lite com­mu­ni­ties to pay a fairer share to­wards Pen­tic­ton’s recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties.
