Bluewater Candidate #1
I've had the pleasure of serving on the board for the past three years. Being an owner of an agricultural business, I am aware of how important strong, reliable telecommunication services are to the rural/ag community. I believe I provide diversity to the board and can help guide the company into the future with my youthfulness and understanding of the tech industry as a whole. Your support for re-election would be appreciated.
Central & North Huron / Morris-Turnberry Candidate #1
A proud member of a Huron County farm family, Marie Mitchell is a retired educator and administrator who is thankful for how TCC strategically develops and sustains services that connect businesses and individuals from our rural community to the world. She is interested in contributing to the TCC Board as it continues the important work of refining and expanding infrastructure and connectivity for members who count on TCC for connection, communication, information, entertainment and protection.
Bluewater Candidate #2
I've enjoyed serving on the board of Tuckersmith for the past 6 years and hope you will do me the honour of choosing me for another 3. I started my 36 year public service career in 1984 when first elected to Stanley Twp. Council. In that time I served as Deputy Reeve for Stanley and was elected Mayor of Bluewater in 2001 to 2014 along with being County Warden in 2004. Your vote would be appreciated so that I can use my past experience to help guide Tuckersmith into the future.
Central & North Huron / Morris-Turnberry Candidate #2
My name is Paul Middegaal, a lifelong Huron County resident. I have been married for 35 years with two grown daughters. I recently retired from Hydro One after 35 years as a regional line maintainer. I have also been cash crop farming since my early teens. During my career with Hydro One, I sat on numerous committees and was president/chair of the local snowmobile club for many years. These experiences have built my excitement and willingness to run for a director position with Tuckersmith Communications Cooperative.
Bluewater Candidate #3
