Incumbent Chilliwack School Board Trustee, Dan Coulter, is making his intentions clear. Coulter is officially launching his campaign bid for re-election in the November 2014 municipal election.
Coulter, a progressive candidate, sees the underlying need to discern value in the education system. Coulter wants to make sure that actions and policies that are adopted in Chilliwack leave positive impressions for students as they develop and become healthy and engaged citizens.
“It’s important to me that our students in Chilliwack have access to an equitable education where everyone has the same chance to succeed.” said Coulter.
Winning his seat in the November 2013 by-election, Coulter had beaten out 5 other candidates and taken over a third of the votes. Since then Coulter has fast become a strong member of the Board.
By running for re-election, he hopes to continue working for a great education for students in Chilliwack.
In addition to his tenure as a current trustee, Coulter sits on the Aboriginal Education Advisory Committee and co-chairs the Chilliwack Healthier Community city initiative alongside Councilor Ken Popove.
