Like most people, I play many roles in life. Among others, I am a father, husband, engaged citizen, union steward, and school board candidate.
Since my daughter will be starting school in the near future, I am personally committed to ensuring that local public schools provide the best education that they possibly can.
As an engaged citizen, I have worked with a number of local organizations to improve communities around Greater Victoria — including as a member of the Hillside-Quadra Neighbourhood Action Committee, the Gorge-Tillicum Community Association, and the Greater Victoria Placemaking Network. As a School Trustee, I will continue to support inclusive communities throughout the region and aim to include diverse voices in every public process.
As a union steward, I know how important it is to maintain good relationships between employees and employers. Good working conditions make for happy employees, and happy employees are better at their jobs. School staff have my support.
As a candidate for School Trustee, my only ambition is to improve the quality and accessibility of education in School District 61. If you think that I will be an effective Trustee, I want to hear from you.
