School District 69: Hildebrandt, John — Board of Trustees candidate

  • Oct. 23, 2014 8:00 p.m.

John Hildebrandt is seeking the Coombs/Hilliers/Errington seat on the School District 69 board of trustees.

“School District 69 has faced dramatic events over the past decade, from strikes to technological change, from transportation issues to school closures,” Hildebrandt said in a news release. “Today, SD69 is held in high regard around the province for its forward thinking ideas and innovative initiatives.”

Hildebrandt said he is running for school trustee “to meet the challenges that our communities will continue to face, and to ensure we maintain our commitment to the children.”

Hildebrandt said he has lived in the area since 1996 and has two children now in high school. He said his involvement in the school system began in Co-op preschool and continued through to PAC chair, fundraising, carnivals, chaperone, literacy programs and school advisory committees.

“My volunteerism continued outside school as firefighter (10 years), QB Family Day, Parksville Community Centre Society, P/Q District 4H Leader, and more. My career is in marketing/PR with organizations such as Xerox Canada, McMillan College, Nanaimo Family Life and Oceanside Tourism.”

“As a Trustee, I promise to: recognize our students as unique individuals, not statistics; be open, honest and available and seek your advice on important issues.”
