Brent Schaffrick

Oilfield consultant and candidate for Edmonton Ward 11

I was born here in Edmonton, I grew up on a farm just south of our City, and I have lived here for most of my adult life. I graduated with Distinction from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Since then, I have worked as a Measurement While Drilling (MWD) Consultant in the oilfield, where I have learned not only the MWD trade, but have gained practical experience in useful skills like: project management, public speaking, teaching, and running a small business.
Before University, I spent twelve years in the Canadian Forces Primary Naval Reserve,
working my way up through the ranks as I did a combination of full time and part time service
to save up the money to pay for further education. Along the way, I was given the opportunity
to serve on many budgetary committees, serving as President, VP, Treasurer and
Secretary for numerous committees and organizations.

Brent Schaffrick for Edmonton Ward 11

Thank you for considering me for the position of City Councillor for Ward 11. My name is Brent Schaffrick, and I want to make Ward 11 a better place to live! Specifically, I want faster snow removal in the winter, smoother roads, a reasonable speed limit on the Whitemud, and a stop to water Fluoridation. I also want to ride the LRT all the way from Millwoods to the west end, and make certain the downtown Arena does not cost more than promised.
