Want to know more about me?

Election Sign 7

This is me, I did the election thing twice already – who knows if there is going to be a third time.

I’ve had this blog since 2011 and have tried to write mainly about politics for a while but now I’m writing about things that are happening today and happening to me and around me.  I have lived in downtown Ottawa since 2007, its where I want to be – long term, besides I do not like moving.

My business background includes 20+ years with Bell Canada in Customer Sales and Service and a couple more with N-Viro Systems Canada where I was Sales and Product Quality Manager for a fertilizer manufacturer using waste diverted from the landfill and waste waster.  It was a great job and allowed me to see parts of Canada I normally would not have visited.

I am now entrenched in the political world – and loving it!  I was in Queen’s Park as a member of Patrick Brown’s team in Toronto.  in 2016 I took the opportunity to come back home to Ottawa and work as a Policy Advisor for John Brassard (Barrie-Innisfil) on Parliament Hill.  I also manage the portfolio of Critic of Veterans Affairs for MP Brassard (who is the Opposition Critic).

I am very active in my community, besides politics, and have been part of an affordable housing organization since 2007.  I have a huge interest in communications and in using Social Media for social good.  I like it so much that I’ve launched RD Media to help others develop “Social strategies for Success”.  I can be found on Twitter (twice @robertdekker & @RDMediaOttawa, on Facebook and Linkedin.

I am currently work for the Member of Parliament for Barrie-Innisfil in Ottawa.

I have two adult children and enjoy living in Centretown with my partner Liz for almost 17years.

    Hey Rob,

    I’m thinking of creating a WordPress.com mass-blog on Canadian politics, and I’m looking for anyone whom would be interested in being a contributor/author/editor.

    Would you be interested?
