I am seeking re-election for a fourth term as a Delta School Board trustee.

I offer experience, commitment and a track record of leadership. My pledge is to do the hard work it takes for our school district to continue to be the envy of the province.

I am a retired teacher and taught for 33 years at North Delta Secondary. My teaching experience combined with 11 years on school board has given me an advantage as a school trustee. I understand the system from the “inside out.”

I have developed a deep understanding of the policies and regulations of the Delta School Board. I am aware of staffing procedures, funding concerns and parental issues. As your trustee, I have served as the board’s representative on the: Delta Youth Activity Council, Emergency Preparedness Committee, Indigenous Enhancement Committee, British Columbia Public Schools Employer’s Association, and Board Audit Committee. I am proud that we have one of the highest graduation and academic achievement rates in the province.

During the pandemic, the Delta School Board faced a challenging situation and COVID-19 continues to be a reality, which requires experienced leadership. I am committed to continue the hard work and dedication needed to keep our schools open and to provide our students with the best in-class instruction.

My wife Jeannie, an elected City of Delta councillor, and I have lived and worked in Delta for over 40 years. My lifelong commitment has been the education of the students of Delta. I have worked with the parents, teachers, and staff to ensure the highest quality learning experience in our schools. My door is open, and I will work with you to continue the success of our School District for all.

I seek your support Oct. 15, please re-elect trustee Nick Kanakos and trustee Bruce Reid. “Independents Working for You”
