OSOYOOS - An Osoyoos woman who championed a movement to save Osoyoos Secondary School has thrown her hat in the ring for nomination as a NDP candidate.

Brenda Dorosz says she decided to run because she feels a strong voice is needed for the Boundary-Similkameen riding and for rural B.C. in general.

“I feel our voice has been somewhat lacking the last few years. I’m a strong self-starter and a proven leader who is ready to help, and I promise to listen,” she says.

Dorosz says she put six months of her life on hold during her fight to save Osoyoos Secondary School from closure earlier this year.

“I feel education, healthcare, seniors, housing, jobs and the environment are important issues for us, and I look forward to talking to people,” she says.

Dorosz is a life-long resident of the South Okanagan with family roots going back to the 1920s. She’s been a licensed daycare operator and has a decade worth of experience in the wine and grape industry.
