Gordon Gay District 9 - Charlottetown-Hillsborough Park

Gordon Gay lives in East Royalty with his wife Andrea and daughters Merinda and Stephanie. His daughter Rachel and grandson Elijah, and his mother Betty live close by. Gordon has been employed with Public Schools Branch for the past 22 years as a custodian.  He is currently at Charlottetown Rural High School. Gordon finds it quite refreshing to work in an environment where ideas are constantly shaping how the future of PEI will turn out. He feels these young people are our future and need our support. For seven years Gordon was involved in the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 1775, and for three years he was president of his local.  During these years he had the privilege of meeting and helping many people. As past president of CUPE Local 1775, and running as a New Democratic Party of Prince Edward Island candidate in the former District 9 in 2015, Gordon learned that everyone’s situation is different. He learned that he needed to keep an open mind to find solutions that would be suitable. Currently Gordon is an active member of the NDP PEI Provincial Council.  Being a Soccer coach was a big part of his volunteering experience, as his daughter Stephanie played for many years.
