Saadiq Sumar

Ward: G Term: 2021-2025

Saadiq (he/him) is a professional engineer with a bachelor of science in civil engineering. In the year after he graduated from the University of Alberta, he was highly engaged with post-secondary students in his role as the Students Union’s Vice-President of Student Life. He believes the goal of education should be to nurture each student to achieve their potential, despite race, gender identity or ability, among other factors. 

Saadiq feels humbled and grateful to have the support of Ward G constituents behind him. As a Trustee, he will focus on moving the education system in a positive direction for students and staff. He hopes to address certain challenges he sees in public education, such as the effects of COVID-19 on schools and students, inadequate provincial funding and the draft curriculum. 

He’s excited to spend the next four years working through issues in public education for students and families. He lives in Ward G with his family.
