Bob Kendel is running for the Area D seat in the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary.

Bob Kendel is vying for the Area D seat on the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary.

I was born in Saskatoon Saskatchewan in 1954. I was raised in several small towns in eastern Saskatchewan but was always near our family farm. I worked on ours as well as many other farms throughout my school years.

In 1980 I married my wife Debbie and after 34 years we are blessed with a daughter, son in law and three grandsons aged eight, six and three.

I have been an entrepreneur businessman for most of my adult life. We have had numerous business ventures including restaurant, auction automobile and heating air conditioning.

The HVAC business is one I am still involved in here in Grand Forks. I have been involved in this industry for 40 years and hold several journeyman certificates in relevant trades.

I was elected to city council in 2012 and can honestly say it has been one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences in my life. I have had the pleasure of being a part of many initiatives undertaken by city council in the past three years. Working on these things has given me the unique perspective of seeing firsthand how important the co-operation or lack of co-operation between the city and our regional partners effects our ability to go forward in the boundary. I believe that there is much more that can be done to enhance the relationship between the regional district and the city of Grand Forks.

I am proud of the accomplishments in my life, family, business and serving in civic politics.

There is definitely an opportunity to take a leadership role for Area D residents and with your support on November 15th we can begin the task   together to do more, to do better.
