Why did you decide to run in the 2010 school board election?
I decided to run in the school board election to help foster ideas, programs and policies which affect our students, educators and the Winnipeg School Division (WSD) community. It is my hope to serve the populace of the WSD in order to promote a diverse and excellent education for its students while being accountable to the taxpayer.
What experience will you bring to complement your role as school trustee?
I believe that continued education is a life-long learning endeavor. My engineering profession has instilled this value and as such I know how critical the decisions made on WSD programs and policies will affect the success of our members in an evolving education system. I wish to make objective contributions towards these decisions and be responsible to the interests of all wards of the WSD.
What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
From the many issues facing the WSD I believe these four are priority:
- Improve student attendance and graduation performance.
- Capital projects including expansion and renewal using sustainable and renewable processes.
- Ensuring programs are in place to aid in the success of our diverse student backgrounds of social, cultural, economic and special-needs.
- Property tax evaluation.
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in your school division? In your ward?
It is essential we encourage increased public involvement in the developments of the WSD board; this includes educating the public how policies and programs affect them.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I continue to educate myself and bring my best efforts towards being a potential school trustee. This is my first campaign to serve in this capacity of a responsible candidate. I am open towards new ideas and thoughts while bringing a fresh perspective on WSD issues. I wish my fellow candidates good luck and hope every voter has the opportunity to vote in the civic election
