Why did you decide to run in the 2010 school board election?
I believe in the Pembina Trails School Division, I sincerely believe that it is one of the best school divisions in the Province of Manitoba.
We have incredible teachers, administrators and families. My decision to run was to continue the momentum in building a strong foundation for our children and to be a voice that put the “public” back into public education. I have a vested interest in the division, given that both my children, currently attend two separate schools within the division. I am committed to providing all of our families within the division quality education. Our children are our future, together we can provide them with the necessary resources to achieve success.
What experience will you bring to complement your role as school trustee?
My experience is in business. In my current position, I manage an enterprise to which I am accountable to shareholders, the public and my staff. My business background has given me the privilege to open successful businesses across Canada. I am however very proud to call Winnipeg and Pembina Trails my home.
As a multi-lingual person, I am conversant in Polish, Czech, Hindi, Punjabi, English and French. I believe that I can effectively listen to the diverse community that is the Pembina Trails School Division.
Giving back to the community is a tenant that I believe in. I believe that community members need to give back in whatever ways possible to them. I have served as a board member to the Masala Mixer board which has made a $50,000 commitment, over the next 5 years, to our very own Victoria General Hospital though an annual fund raiser. Furthermore, I have sat on boards including Variety Club and my children's respective schools and daycares.
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in your school division? In your ward?
I want to see our division grow even further than it has, we have the potential and the responsibility to the community. We are blessed to have a community in which our citizens come from all different cultural backgrounds, languages and beliefs. Given this reality of a growing community, I foresee questions revolving around school expansion and technology in the classroom. Furthermore, we need to keep an eye on the basics revolving around our everyday curriculum: Math, science, language studies and art.
We have incredibly talented teachers, good resources and dedicated administrators all with one-common goal: our children.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I reflect back on a piece of advice my father gave to me:
''As parent, I can only give you a solid foundation for which you can build what you choose, be it a skyscraper or a hut, I am only your foundation that is my limit, you have the potential to build as high as you choose.''
I want to see our children build their skyscrapers – together we can give them the strong foundation to achieve their goals and when we work together there will be no limit as to how high their skyscrapers will climb.
