Questionnaire Response

Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?

As a father of six children and five grandchildren, I have a vast interest in our public education system.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?

I have been a member of the Winnipeg School Division Board of Trustees since 1995. I am currently the senior Trustee on the Board, and I believe my experience and strong independent voice will benefit my community.

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?

The issues that are most important to me are those that are brought forward to me from the community. I believe the constituents elect me to be their voice. Their opinion counts.

As a Trustee, transparency and accountability are very important. I have always tried my best to keep my community aware of the issues and decisions that are discussed and implemented at the Division.

What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?

I was born, raised, and still live in Ward 8. I raised my family in this community and ran the largest outdoor sports program for all ages in this community at the Old Exhibition Grounds for 25 years.
I believe my ward is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city and filled with the most exceptional people. It has always been a community with many cultural backgrounds. What I appreciate the most about my ward is that no matter how different we are, we all have so much in common.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

Nothing is more important to our families and our community than our children, and I am proud to serve as their School Trustee. I would be honored to continue.
