Hello I'm Norm St.George
I am running for Trustee for the Niagara District School Board Monday October 22, 2018. I believe Education is an important part of our children's lives and every child has the right to be successful. I want to make sure our students get the best education possible.
I am a longtime resident of St.Catharines. I have worked in the Niagara area for over 40 years for Canadian Tire Financial Services and Bank. I recently retired and am looking forward to being your Public School Trustee. I have always been an active participant in the community from a young age and feel strongly about the future of the young generation who are attending the schools of the District School Board of Niagara.
I am a proud father of my 3 sons, Sean, Kelly and Matthew St.George. They all received their education here in the Niagara Region and have gone on to be successful citizens . My daughter in law teaches elementary school aged children in Grimsby. My four grandchildren Maya ,Braden ,Alexis and Keaton have all attended schools in the Niagara Region. Braden has recently graduated from High School and Maya will be attending Public High School this year.
My experience as a former City Councilor for the Port Dalhousie Ward, will help guide me in this new role as your School Trustee. I am caring, outgoing and a passionate citizen. I am looking forward to being an advocate to voice concerns and make sure our students are all given the opportunity to be Successful. The children will always be my Number One priority.
This Election is About Our Students!
