Steven Shoemaker

I am a teacher at Charlottetown Rural High School and have always had an interest in politics. I live on Alexander Drive with my wife Cynthia and our two sons Samuel and Simon. I decided for this term to offer for the position of Mayor of the Municipal Council, as I really enjoyed my term as Councilor. It is a great learning experience and a privilege to represent the constituents of Clyde River. I can be reached at 902.388.1513 to discuss any concerns you may have regarding our community.

I grew up in Cornwall PEI and moved to Clyde River in 1997, where I currently reside. I joined Council to share my experience and knowledge to help the Community of Clyde River adapt to change and to hopefully provide a future that will suit current and future land owners. Residents and businesses as best as possible. ”

I encourage all residents to get involved with your community by attending events, providing feedback on how your council is doing as well as speaking up on issues that are important to you. Learn / know where your tax dollars are being spent and, best of all, become a volunteer on a committee.”
