There weren't enough hours in the day for Al Siebring to be a North Cowichan councillor and B.C. Conservative Party's board president.

Regretfully, he resigned his Tory board presidency during the weekend — wishing for a 36-hour day.

"You can only do so much," he told the News Leader Pictorial of his unpaid, administrative post now under by Christine Clarke's watch.

"It was just a purely personal decision."

Part of that choice, he explained, is an increasing workload with the Vista Broadcast Group of radio stations.

"There just weren't enough hours in the day between council and my professional broadcast life," said Siebring, who became Conservative board boss Sept., 22 in Langley during the B.C. party's annual general meeting.

"It was getting to the point where I was worried my North Cowichan council duties were suffering."
