HUMBOLDT — Running for council has always been something that Roger Korte has wanted to do, he said.
Now is the time, with Korte running in the upcoming municipal election along with 14 other council hopefuls.
As a long time journeyman autobody technician and a former volunteer with the Humboldt Broncos and the Humboldt Jaycees, Korte wants to be at the table to continue making good choices for the city while bringing new ideas to the table, he said.
He’s not coming in with an agenda, he said, just the focus and the desire to make good decisions as a councillor.
Having so many people running in the election is great to see, he said, since that does mean that people are interested in joining the discussion, especially with the mix of men and women wanting to be at the table.
“[It] shows good interest in the city. It's good to see the numbers are up."
