Powell River school board candidate: Doug Skinner

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?

I’ve been involved in education since 1974 as a teacher, administrator and for the last 10 years as a Powell River school trustee.

For the last couple of years I have been chairperson for the Board of Trustees.

I have also coached Powell River students for over 20 years.  

I believe the present board has done a great job over the past three terms.

The creation of the Outdoor Learning Centre, the trades program and bringing French immersion to Powell River are just a few of the benefits we’ve strongly endorsed.

I believe in all our students and will strongly promote what I feel is best for our young people.
