Rob Hill is one of six candidates vying for five Powell River Board of Education seats in the civic election on October 15.

Six candidates have entered the race for the five Powell River Board of Education seats to be filled on general election day (October 15), including Rob Hill, Dale Lawson, Maureen Mason, Jaclyn Miller, Scott Randolph and Kirsten Van’t Schip.

The Peak asked each candidate the following question:

Why should voters choose you to serve as a Powell River Board of Education trustee?

Here is the response from Rob Hill:

I have been a school board trustee since the by-election in April 2021. I was born and raised here, graduated from Brooks, and moved back in 2018 to work for MLA Nicholas Simons.

My partner and I raise our four children here on the traditional and treaty lands of the Tla’amin Peoples. Our oldest two attend Westview Elementary.

Since being elected, I have worked successfully with other trustees, our superintendent, teachers and administrators to deliver benefits to students in SD47. This includes expanding before and after school care in all schools, ensuring food programs are in place so students are fed, and strengthening our early years programming. I have come to understand the role, parameters and responsibilities of this position.

I continue to work with other trustees to address graduation rates, socioeconomic issues facing families, student and teacher mental health, and supports for diverse and vulnerable learners.

I am progressive, forward-thinking, a team player, and I centre students and families in my role as a trustee – all strengths I will bring to the board table.

I will also continue to work with Tla’amin Nation to ensure the success of Tla’amin learners.

I look forward to your support on October 15 and I will strongly represent our community if reelected.
