School District 20: Wilson, Mark – School Trustee

  • Oct. 29, 2014 4:00 p.m.

Mark WilsonMark grew up in Vancouver – moved to Trail in 1974 where he taught at J.L. Crowe for 35 years before retiring – presently employed for the last eight years as a realtor for Century 21 of Trail. Married 37 years with three grown children and two grandchildren (Jake and Connor) – reside in Miral Heights. Education: B. A. and a M.Ed. Have been a school board member for six years.

We need delivery of excellent education to all of our students across our district. Public education is always exciting and challenging in B.C.

We need to pull together as a cohesive unit to make this a reality in our district. We need to avoid the politics and personal agendas and work on the common good for all of our students. I will be committed to upholding these goals – I will be a strong voice advocating for the best education model for our district.

Equity in our district – this very important issue has made progress in the last three years. We still have more to do – we have to make sure our resources and dollars for education are spread evenly and equitably over our entire school district.

Trustee numbers need to be reduced and politics set aside so that we can work on our common goal “Providing the best Public Education we can do for School District 20.”

Help me by giving me your vote and “Let’s build a Solid Educational Community Together!”
