THUNDER BAY – POLITICS – It is a race in McIntyre Ward. Logan Ollivier has been knocking on doors and working through his campaign. Now, Wesley Ramage has declared he is seeking the seat as well. Incumbent Trevor Giertuga has not declared his intentions yet.
Ramage is a lifelong resident of Thunder Bay and it is his desire to represent the residents of the McIntyre Ward. He is a family man with a wife and two young children. He has established himself in the ward by constructing a home in the rural area of McIntyre. Wesley will help make Thunder Bay a safe, sustainable and prosperous community where his and others children will want to live and have the employment opportunities to do so. He describes himself as a leader that is accessible to all and would govern with integrity and transparency. He’s not afraid to challenge city officials when their actions aren’t in the best interests of the people.
Wesley has been teaching locally with the Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board for over 6 years and has also been a proud serving member of the Canadian Forces Army Reserves for over 12 years.
