The RDCK is to debate a child care compensation policy.
It’s a way of encouraging younger parents -especially women – to consider running for political office.
Salmo Mayor and RD Director Stephen White says there’s a serious need to change the older demographic around the tables of local government.
White says it’s time to have politicians of an age that reflects the full demographic spectrum of their constituents.
The RDCK board will debate a policy that also considers compensation for directors who are caring for a dependent.
