The race for the Countryside councillor seat in Kingston is heating up.
Business man Gary Oosterhof has declared his desire to represent the rural district.
The son of a farmer, Oosterhof grew up in athens, but has lived in the countryside district for close to the last thirty years running Oosterhof Electrical Services.
Oosterhof says he hopes to represent the district carrying on the work started by former councillor Richard Allen.
“So I wanted to continue on that good path that he’s brought us, and really knowing the countryside well and the people and I’ve learned that over the years in business and I’m excited to…on the issues whether it’s taxes or roads or the bridge all those things matter to me and to the people of Countryside.”
