Candidates for School District 43 (SD43) trustee positions are starting to make themselves known, at least in Port Coquitlam.
Today (Aug. 15), Christine Pollock announced that she will be seeking a second term on the district's board of education during the 2022 civic election — set for Oct. 15.
"The past four years have been challenging but rewarding in so many ways. It is my sincere hope that I will have the opportunity to continue serving our communities," stated Pollock in an email to the Tri-City News.
Pollock is a former education assistant, who retired in 2017 from a 30-year career with SD43.
Her job was to support students at the elementary, middle school and senior secondary levels.
Her last 10 years in SD43 were spent in the Learning Services Department as part of the Inclusion Support Team supporting students with behavioural challenges, both in the classroom and through outreach, according to her biography on the district's website.

She joins several community members who have announced their intentions to run in the upcoming election, including incumbents Port Coquitlam Mayor Brad West and Coun. Nancy McCurrach, as well as council candidates Sarah Harbord, Erik Minty, Jami Watson, and Justin Alexander Smith.
In Port Moody, Keith Watkins told the Tri-City News in June he won't be seeking another term on SD43's school board.
