Powell River school board candidate: Russell Brewer

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 choose you?

Here is the reply from Russell Brewer:

I have two children who are recent graduates of School District 47 and I served as Parent Advisory Committee president and treasurer for a number of years.

I am a forester and resource manager with BC Ministry of Forests and have been a city councillor in Powell River since 2011.

I have also served on numerous local boards, always with a focus on teamwork, including Powell River Division of Family Practice, Cycling Association, Powell River Métis Society, French Club Bon Accueil, and Track and Field Club.

I hope to focus on improvement of academic achievement and transition to trades training and post-secondary institutions, incorporation of indigenous reconciliation initiatives and increased opportunities for public engagement and awareness of school district and board activities and initiatives.
