Election 2018: Rick Hodgson running for Revelstoke School District board

Rick Hodgson is running to be a trustee of the Revelstoke School District board in the upcoming election.

“I have five very distinct reasons for running for school board…. ages two and a half to 8 years,” Hodgson said via email. “Three are in grades K, 2 and 3. The other two will impact the system in 3 years. I want to work for them.”

Hodgson foresees new pressures on the school district as Revelstoke moves from a resource-based to a resort-based economny.

“I want to be a part of a future that makes decisions that ensure we don’t lose any of the exceptional school services that our children presently enjoy,” Hodgson said.

Hodgson has 25 years of experience in the classroom, teaching Grades 3-9 as well as adults. As an itinerant teacher Hodgson has experience with the Kindergarten to Grade 4 students. He also worked as a teacher librarian as well as a principal.

Outside of school, Hodgson served as a village councillor when he lived in Ontario, and ran for council in Revelstoke in the 2010 election.

“In business, I helped to establish computer store franchises in Saskatchewan, and with my wife, owned and operated a graphic design, production and installation business in Vernon,” Hodgson said.

No retired, Hodgson continues to graphic design and consulting work from home.

Hodgson bought a home in Revelstoke in 2007 and more here permanently in 2010.
