Before voters head to the polls for the 2018 general election on Saturday, October 20, the Peak asked the eight candidates campaigning for a seat on Powell River Board of School Trustees: Why should City of Powell River and qathet Regional District residents vote for you?
Here is the reply from Aaron Reid:
Powell River born, I am a married and self-employed mother of two with a daughter in grade 10 at Brooks and a son in grade seven at Westview Elementary School.
After three terms of service to the people of Powell River and the surrounding areas, I am seeking re-election for a fourth term in the October 20 election.
To demonstrate my commitment to my role and our constituents, in my 10 years of service I have not missed a single one of the three board meetings scheduled each month.
I always put the needs of our students first while making decisions that are also respectful of the teachers and support staff in this district.
