School Trustee Candidate: Mark Danyluk acclaimed in – Kettle Valley West

School District 51: Danyluk, Mark acclaimed as school trustee

Mark Danyluk

I have been living in the Boundary region since 2002. Prior to that I lived in Richmond where I worked and managed a group home for persons with developmental disabilities, managed, lived and created community in low income housing, was pastor of a church, and worked for an airline where I actively developed communication processes between different departments.

I am married to Christine (nee Schmidt) and have four children: three of whom have graduated from BCSS. My youngest is in grade 11 at BCSS. My formal training is in theology. I was a pastor in Midway from 2002-2012. I have been a paramedic with BC Ambulance since 2007, assuming Unit Chief duties in 2012. I am a person who cares about people—all people, regardless of who they are. Justice, compassion and mercy are a big part of who I am.

My skill set can be summed in the following descriptions: developer, restorative, connectedness, positivity and includer.

I am a collaborator. I seek to listen, understand and build bridges enabling decisions to be made in a healthy and fair manner.

To be honest, a week before the nomination deadline, running for offce wasn’t even on my radar. When I was asked to consider running a few days before the deadline it very simply seemed like the right timing and right thing to do. I got the sense from speaking with various involved parties that my strengths would be a good fit at this time in the school district.
