RDEK Election Candidate – Area E Director

Nowell Berg announces candidacy for Area E Director in the up-coming RDEK elections. “If you want effective representation, then you need to vote for me,” he said. “Regular meetings with residents and community groups will be held to gather comments, ideas and input. People will be heard. I will listen to what you have to say.”

A long-time Wasa resident, Nowell lives with his wife, Wanda, on family property owned since 1949. Nowell’s parents, Burt and Vivian, always said “Wasa is our home.” He has deep roots in Area E spending summers, school holidays and long-weekends at Wasa. He’s enjoyed the challenge of climbing TeePee Mountain along with snow skiing, water skiing, hiking, biking, swimming and fishing in the area.

With a strong educational background in government and politics, Nowell’s participation in the local community includes over 3 years as a Trustee on the Board of the Wasa Lake Land Improvement District (WLLID). He volunteers to write the feature article each month for the Tri-Village Buzz along with supporting local fundraising activities.

Nowell is a candidate because:

  • The Area E Director must represent all residents, even those with differing points of view, and work collaboratively toward fair compromise solutions
  • A Director must be accountable and transparent along with providing effective representation on the RDEK Board when they take a position that has significant opposition from Area E residents

Nowell will work with residents, community groups and businesses to secure RDEK, CBT, Provincial and Federal funding for local projects and programs.

Particular issues of interest: rural fire prevention and suppression, waste management and transfer station maintenance, educational opportunities for rural students, encouraging young families to remain in the area by supporting home-based businesses, effective RDEK Bylaw enforcement and enhanced RCMP patrols throughout the area.

His professional business experience includes sales, marketing and corporate communications for a variety of companies in the Canadian energy, marketing research and media sectors.
