about kevin:

Kevin Boychuk is a hardworking, dedicated local business owner, husband, father of three and proud citizen in the City of Saskatoon who cares deeply about the well-being and betterment of his community.  Kevin attended the University of Saskatchewan and has been a resident of Ward 1 for 35 years. He has been involved in many facets of Ward 1 throughout those years, including coaching hockey, volleyball, soccer and baseball.  Kevin is firm believer in providing appropriate allocations to core neighbourhoods to maintain and revitalize them at a community level.

"It's time we move away from this user pay mentality at City Hall, as tax payers we already pay!  We need to put back value and accountability into City Hall for YOU the rate payer.  If you elect me as your City Councilor on November 9th, I will have a dedicated phone line and email address that I can be reached at any time of day.  I will answer or return calls immediately and will be happy to talk directly to the people I work for in Ward 1.  I'm looking to earn your support on Nov. 9, 2020 in Ward 1."
