Maury Nielson is seeking a position as councillor in the Township of Morley.
He has been a school bus owner and operator for the Rainy River District School Board for the past 20 years. He is married to Cindy and has a daughter, Katelyn, and son, Tyler.
Nielson has not previously held a position on municipal council, but his related experience includes sitting on the committee to negotiate drivers’ contracts with the school board for the past five years.
The main reason Nielson is running this year is because the Sifton/Dewart Townships amalgamated with Morley Township three years ago and he wants the residents of these townships to feel that they had a “voice” on council.
He has lived in the Dewart Township for the past 20 years and always has lived in Rainy River District.
