Why should I vote for you?

I am a parent whose child is currently attending school within our district. As a parent and someone with an interest in education policy, I’m committed to working collaboratively with other parents, students, educators and the public to ensure our children receive the very best education. I can offer my experience working with the public, interpreting legislation, policy development and budget management. I’m committed to upholding the principles of good governance ensuring decisions are transparent and the board is accountable. As your representative I would aim to use my knowledge and experience to serve our communities interests and to stand up for the changes we need.

 

Your main goal if elected?

If elected I aim to be an advocate for adequate funding for public education. I would work to ensure that our limited resources are used in the most effective and beneficial way possible. I’m committed to approaching these goals in a focussed and proactive manner. Engaging the community, in particular parents, teachers and students in a discussion about what we want our public education system to look like and how we can best serve our children’s interests.
