Joel Fraser
Kelowna School District No. 23

I am 33 years old, a military veteran of 14 years, having been in multiple units in both the regular and reserve forces. I left the regular force for a job as a police officer in the city of Sarnia, ON. I served there for 4.5 years prior to my move and career change in B.C. While policing I spent a considerable amount of time helping coach rugby at a local high school. Currently I am working in retail, belong to the pipefitters union, and am in school as an electrical apprentice. I am seeking a career position as a firefighter locally as well. I am currently living in the Glenmore area of Kelowna, and looking to build locally. I do not have kids yet but hope to.

I’ve wanted to live in the Okanagan since I was around 10 years old and visited the area on ski vacations.

Upon making my final move to Kelowna, I sought out areas to volunteer and get to know my community. I currently volunteer with Vernon Search and Rescue, and sit on the Board of Directors for the Kelowna Lake Country EDA -Conservative Party of Canada.

I am running as a school trustee because of my belief in the power of a strong education system. I believe through a higher standard of education, our future generations can build a more cohesive Canada. Innovation will continue to play a large role in our World economy, and I want to see our school systems continue to provide students with the right tools to do so. I believe I can listen to public concerns and help bring forward solutions to difficult issues.

I look forward to hearing from the public and hope to be able represent the schools.
