Bio

Elaine Leonard has been honoured to serve as a member of the Victoria Board of Education for the past 18 years. A graduate of Esquimalt Secondary School, she has had two children go through the Victoria school system. When her children were young she joined the McKenzie Elementary PAC, serving as its President, and joined the Esquimalt Secondary PAC and the Esquimalt Music PAC. Following her many years on the local school PACs, she saw the need to have trustees on the school board who were not afraid to stand up and speak out on behalf of children, trustees who were not afraid to suggest change and who were not afraid to vote for change. She has served as the chair of the Board of Education and has chaired the Operations, Policy and Planning Committee for a number of years. Elaine works as an administrator for a non-profit society.

 

Why should I vote for you?

Student achievement has always been my top priority. I will continue to fight for increased investment in our schools to provide funding to help all students reach their full potential. I provide a strong independent voice, committed to putting the needs of our students first.

 

Your main goal if elected?

My main goal is to continue to put pressure on the province to provide additional resources for the classroom. We need to fight for full provincial funding that meets the true cost of educating our children.
