During the Area D All Candidates Forum it was stated by Candidate Irene Perepolkin's daughter/spokesperson that I blocked Director Perepolkin's return to her duties on the Regional District Board of Directors.
I wish to categorically, and for the record, state that at no time did I prevent Director Perepolkin from returning to her duties.
I deeply regret having to write this letter but felt that the residents of Electoral Area "D" Rural Grand Forks were entitled to be fully informed that neither I, not the RDKB Board of Directors prevented Director Perepolkin from returnign to her duties.
