Kershaw was asked what he wanted to say to his constituents after the Oct. 20, 2018, election results were made official? He stated, “I want to thank everyone for their support and for re-electing me for another four years as your TNRD Director. I look forward to the new challenges that another term will bring, and also to the Trans Mountain Pipeline.”
