Steve Rice – TNRD Area I candidate

1. How long have you lived in your community?

This is an exciting year – most exciting is the birth of our ninth grandchild… beautiful Aaliyah who arrived on March 13. It is my 30th year of calling Spences Bridge home.

2. What is your occupation?

I have been farming for my 30 years in Spences Bridge. In 2007, my wife, Paulet, and I bought a property and two local contractors transformed the building into a small… very wonderful little café and store.

3. Have you done any volunteer work here? Which group(s)?

I published a local paper called the Bridge Bulletin. Attended meetings, whether highways, tourism or community club. Joined our Volunteer Fire Department. I continue to volunteer when possible.

4. Have you served before in municipal government or on a Board of School Trustees? If yes, where, when, and for how long?

I have served two terms as a TNRD Director for Area I (Blue Sky Country)

5. Which issues are most important to you?

A critical issue is the health of the finest Steelhead… in the world. The other critical issue is the download the Province has put on our small Volunteer Fire Departments and Brigades.

6. How would you address them?

Writing to our MLA and MP. A meeting with Minister Donaldson recently about the Steelhead. Attended a Minister meeting to address our concerns concerning Volunteer Fire Departments and Brigades. I have also been a strong voice at the board table on both issues.

7. Additional comments

I would like to thank the folks in beautiful Blue Sky Country. We are blessed to call Blue Sky Country home. The amazing passion of our volunteers, the compassion of neighbours helping neighbours, the abundance of arts and culture, the spectacular natural wonders… we truly live in a little slice of Heaven on Earth.
