Two Chilliwack residents have declared their intention to run for school board seats.

Businessman Jack Bass has thrown his hat in the ring, along with retired teacher and principal Walt Krahn.

Bass announced he is running for election as school district trustee with a platform of “ability and integrity” on the heels of his stints as a lawyer, consultant, and more recently head of the Downtown New Westminster BIA.

“The board has the role of leadership in public education. It follows that the Board needs persons with demonstrated leadership abilities,” Bass writes on his election website.

For the past two years he developed and taught Fraser Valley businesses “how to develop their visions into goals and action plans” and then to bring them to fruition. Check out www.jackbassteam.com

Retired principal Walt Krahn was both a teacher and administrator over his 35-year career, and stated he enjoyed working 16 of those years in Chilliwack. He grew up in Chilliwack and graduated from Sardis secondary.

His last postings were as principal of Little Mountain elementary as well as Promontory Heights elementary.

Krahn’s platform follows what he calls the ABCs of Education: Achieving, Believing and Caring.

“Our greatest challenge is to continue to improve student learning,” he writes on his website.
