ELECTION: Delta Trustee Kanakos to seek re-election

DELTA – Incumbent Trustee Nick Kanakos announced Tuesday (Sept. 23) that he is seeking re-election in the Nov. 15 Delta civic elections.

As a retired Delta teacher, Kanakos said he has dedicated his life to working with parents to deliver quality education.

“My lifelong commitment has been to provide the best quality education for the students of Delta," he said. "I will continue to work with the parents, teachers, and support staff to ensure a quality learning experience in Delta.”

Kanakos said he is a trustee who is actively involved not just to education, but the many extra-curricular activities in the Delta School District.

“When I was elected as a school trustee, I made a commitment to attend not only the regular school board meetings but school activities such as Christmas concerts, Parent Advisory Council meetings, graduations, and Aboriginal ceremonies because I believe this active involvement in the District helps me make the best decisions for Delta’s students.”

Kanakos joins a team called Independents Working for You, which includes incumbent Coun. Bruce McDonald, incumbent School Trustee and Chairwoman Laura Dixon, and his wife of 40 years, Coun. Jeannie Kanakos. In 2011, Nick and Jeannie Kanakos made history by becoming the first ever husband and wife team elected in Delta.

Kanakos is a father of four and long-time resident of Delta. You can follow him on Facebook or contact him via e-mail.
