I have been married to my lovely wife Sharon, a substitute teacher in the Rocky View Schools, for 38 years. We have 2 great children, Jacob who’s 30 and Katie who’s 26. Both attended Rocky View Schools from K to 12 and received an excellent education which allowed them to continue onto post secondary degrees.
I’ve been involved in numerous activities and groups throughout the city, from coaching both my son and daughter in soccer, as a director on the Festival of Lights, President of the Friends of the Airdrie Public Library, volunteering with the Boys & Girls Club, founding member and vice-chair for Airdrie Pride, to chairing A.E. Bowers School council. This has provided me a greater insight into the wants and needs of the citizens of Airdrie. Also, being a local business owner has given me the opportunity to view the city from a different perspective.
My 15 years on Airdrie City Council were an amazing and rewarding experience. I firmly believe that my council experience would be an enormous asset to the trustee position. With your support, I eagerly look forward to my next step as a Rocky View School Trustee. On October 18th I look forward to being one of your school trustees and have you join me in “Growing Airdrie’s Future”.
