Why should I vote for you?

I have committed the majority of my life to ensuring that all students receive fully funded and quality public education and will continue to fight for this. I believe our board must be open, transparent and accountable for the annual $200 M budget that we receive from your tax dollars.

Your main goal if elected?

I will continue to advocate for fully funded public education as it is the basis of our democracy; for our most vulnerable students so that they receive all supports in order to be successful; that all seismic upgrades be fully funded and that our Board be open and transparent.
