Why should I vote for you?

I’m here for the kids and their right to have a range of choices and services within a quality public education system. I’ve been an education activist for 32 years (27 as a Trustee). I work hard to ensure all voices are fairly heard and considered in decisions.

 

Your main goal if elected?

I will support academic excellence through well-resourced regular classrooms, music, the Arts, sport academies and other programs. I will advocate relentlessly for better funding of the true cost of educating children. I will work with all partner groups to restore peace and balance in our school district.
