The only incumbent running for Rossland council again this month says keeping taxes low remains his number one priority.
Long-time teck fire fighter Tim Thatcher is wrapping up his first term.
He says it will be a major learning curve for at least the four new names elected. So he figures he and mayor Greg Granstrom – who has chosen to run for council – can be the “old blood” to help out.
As for voters associating him politically with Rossland’s recent financial management problems? Thatcher says the issues around the arena upgrades and former building inspector happened before this council’s term.
