Mathew Bond - District of North Vancouver Council
During my first term on Council, I diligently applied my decade of experience as a systems engineer to the issues discussed and decided upon. I analyzed the issues, seeking to understand the complexities and advocate for a pragmatic path to the desired outcome based on evidence and best practice. I now have an in-depth understanding of the critical challenges facing the DNV, the strategies necessary to address them and both the experience and desire to move forward.
There are no simple answers to the complex and intertwined challenges we face. It will take a suite of actions, aligned in a common direction to bring relief and maintain our high quality of life in a growing and changing region.
I am dedicated to making a difference in our community and have the energy, enthusiasm and experience to lead us through the next four years.
Devon Bruce - North Vancouver School Board Trustee
At every turn, I advocate for individuals living with developmental disabilities. My work has ranged from life skills training to behavioural intervention to Special Education Assistant. Currently, I manage the Employment and Social Enterprise programs for North Shore ConneXions Society.
Along with my local experience, I bring a broad view of K-12 education to the table. I’ve worked with Global Affairs Canada developing education programs in elementary schools in Uganda and personally oversaw some of these programs in remote villages.
Inclusion and special education have always been my passion. I believe my career experience will lend itself exceptionally well to the North Vancouver School Board.
As trustee, I am committed to working on behalf of all students within the district.
