School trustee candidate: Nicholas Aubin running in Kelowna

School District 23: Aubin, Nicholas - Trustee Candidate

  • Oct. 8, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Nicholas Aubin, a father and local notary public, has announced his candidacy for Kelowna school trustee in the upcoming November election.

“As a father with young children in the public school system, with a spouse who is a Certified Education Assistant and a brother who is a teacher, I am proud to have deep roots in the public school system and to maintaining the highest standards for our current and future generations,” Aubin says.

“By supporting students and schools, I feel I can contribute to my community. Our children are the future and I want to be a part of shaping the direction of our school district.”

Aubin wants to focus on putting students first, which he says means working towards increased graduation and literacy rates, better support in the classrooms and to ensure that facilities meet current and future needs.

With both board and committee experience, along with business and legal knowledge, Aubin says he would bring a fresh perspective to the board.

He also cites a unique educational experience as a graduate of Penticton High School, a student at Okanagan College and a computer business owner before he became a notary public.

Aubin is the past president of the Uptown Rutland Business Improvement Area and currently serves on the URBA executive as treasurer.

He has served three consecutive terms as chair of his local Notary Public association chapter, and is past treasurer of the Kelowna Community Food Bank and currently serves as bylaw committee chair.

Aubin also currently serves as a public appointee on a provincial level college regulatory board and feels ready to support local students and schools.
