Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?
Having worked for the school division for just under twenty-five years, and lived in the area for forty years. I would love the opportunity to represent the people who live in this ward. I have sat on the New Democrat Executive as a member of large for of number of years and am still an active member of the NDP. I have a strong political background, understanding and knowledge to be a great School Trustee.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?
I have been and still am a long time Vice President of Cupe Local 110. I am well experienced and educated in negotiations, individual representations, benefits and pension plan issues as well as human rights and in fact have represented and have been educated in most labour / human rights issues. Having been involved in public school politics I've seen the need for an educated staff and leaders to work together to bring education to a front.
What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as School Trustee, and why are these issues important to you?
I will work to keep our taxes as low as possible but not at the expense of the children living in this area or the staff working for the Seven Oakes School Divisions. I support public use of our school buildings and public daycare.
What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?
I have lived in Ward 2 of Seven Oakes School Division for 40 years and have raised two children here. I appreciate the growth and open minds of the people in the community and see the future of the youth as our most important goal.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
With all the different ethnicity's in our ward I see Seven Oakes as still one of the best areas to raise and live with your family. I hope to continue to see a strong division with many programs available to all of our residents.
