Dear Lord. We pray today for Steve Clark. We ask that he would guide him during his time in Opposition as an MPP and that he would find his work deeply rewarding and meaningful. We ask that he would also experience the internal peace that comes from knowing that he is helping people. May his family and his friends be a large part of the quality of character that he brings to his work. Amen.
Steve also worked in the media and Internet development for 14 years with the Brockville Recorder and Times newspaper and RipNet. Following this, Steve served as the executive assistant for the highly respected long-serving Leeds-Grenville MPP Bob Runciman.
Prior to his election as Leeds-Grenville MPP, Steve was the Chief Administrative Officer for the Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands.
Steve believes in being a strong leader in his community. He was the founding chairman of the 2007 Leeds-Grenville International Plowing Match and Country Festival. A proponent of education and physical fitness, Steve also helped raise $1.3M for the Thousand Islands Secondary School Track Facility, one of the largest fundraising accomplishments for a public educational institution to date in this region. This state-of-the-art facility now attracts thousands of athletes to the community each year and played host to this year’s OFSAA championships.
Steve also boasts over a quarter of a century of community volunteerism. Some of the many groups and committees he has served with are St. Lawrence Lodge, the Brockville Braves hockey club and the Brockville and Area YMCA. He is also a Past President of the Rotary Club of the 1000 Islands, a position from which he had to retire when he was elected MPP.
Steve is married to Deanna. Together they are the proud parents of a blended family of five: Mitchell, Caitlin, Jordan, Alex and Meghan
