Kingston is my city;
Lakeside District is
In 1982 I graduated from Queen’s and took a teaching position in Fort McMurray where I met my wife, Catherine. While there we were blessed with the first of our three children and I first became a school administrator. I was very fortunate to be name-recipient of the Frank Wyatt MacLean fellowship in education which gave us the opportunity to return to Kingston where I completed my master’s degree in Education.
In 1989 Catherine and I purchased our home, a return to Glen Castle for me. We have lived here ever since. During the past 25 years in education in Kingston I have been employed as a teacher, an administrator and as a principal and vice-principal of both Holy Cross and Regi.
Prior to my retirement, I was elected President of the Ontario Catholic Principals’ Association and as such represented principals and vice principals across Ontario.
During my time in Kingston I have had the opportunity to serve the community as a member of several boards and agencies including: Children’s Aid Society, The United Way, the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Kingston, the Algonquin and Lakeshore Foundation along with several other agencies and committees in support of education, youth and sport in the Kingston area.
Another highlight was the opportunity I had to work with City of Kingston officials to plan the Jayna Hefford celebration after she scored the gold medal winning goal at the 2002 Winter Olympics.
The Lakeside District has been my home for most of my life. I played here as a young person, I have coached kids here in hockey, football and basketball, I have stood as a parent on the sidelines at Jim Beattie Field and in line for swimming lessons at Lakeshore Pool. I have enjoyed the natural splendor of our district.
As a long-time resident of Lakeside, I know this district and the people who live in it and I feel very strongly that I will wholeheartedly represent your interests and aspirations at the council table. I have both the energy and the time to represent these interests and to contribute to the betterment of the whole Kingston community.
