Meet Jake

My name is Jake Skinner and I am a running to be re-elected as your Thames Valley school board trustee in London's Wards 7, 8, 9, 10, and 13. 

As a small business owner, PhD Candidate at Western, and parent with five children at Thames valley, I bring a strong parent voice that will represent our community. 

I know how the school board works and how to get things done.  I have proven that by gaining funding for robotics in our high schools, equipping our schools with AEDs, increasing safety in school zones, and getting the province to add more supports for coding at the elementary level. 

I am also working on a PhD focused on education change in Ontario and have taught public administration in the political science department at Western.
