Powell River school board candidate: Troy Marshall

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 Troy Marshall:

I am running for school trustee because I am confident that my education and experience will allow me to make fair and intelligent decisions in that role.

I am a licensed automotive service technician by trade, a certified BC school teacher by profession, and an advocate for public education by passion.

I have worked as a private business owner, a teacher, a union president and a school administrator, served on several boards and have had our twin children go through our local school system.

I initiated dual trades programs in the Powell River School District. I was instrumental in forming Powell River Educational Services Society (PRESS) to provide training opportunities for students.

I am an advocate for students, and will fight hard to pressure the provincial government for adequate funding for students and fair contracts for our employees.
