Ray Chartrand

Municipal Councillor Huron East - Retired Business Person

My wife Debbie and I moved to this beautiful area 11 years ago. Since moving here, I have been involved with many service groups, including the Optimist Club, the Seaforth Legion, and the Van Egmond House Foundation. I am currently a councillor for the ward of Tuckersmith Township in the Municipality of Huron East.

Prior to moving here, we lived in Windsor, Ontario where I worked at Chrysler Canada. I was a manufacturing manager at the plant where I worked for 32 years, retiring at the young age of 50.

During my years employed at Chrysler Canada, I gained a vast knowledge of the process of manufacturing, managing employees, meeting budgets and time lines. I was also the co-owner of a small business, which my partner and I started up, specializing in the designing and building of decks, fences, and gazebos.
