Why should I vote for you?

I commit to work very hard and with integrity at the Board table including all interested stakeholder groups to accomplish the following:

  • A strategic plan that guides SD61 into the future

  • Trustee-led finance committee to increase transparency and public accountability

  • Public engagement on class size, composition and learning support for students

 

Your main goal if elected?

My main goal, if elected, is to advocate relentlessly for full funding for public education. Our students should not feel inadequate as learners because our district does not have enough funding to provide the teachers and other support professional to meet their needs.
