Tim Johnson - Pembina Trails - 2
What got you into politics?
When I first decided to run for School Trustee, our youngest child was 2 and his siblings were 4, 7 and 9. Our 7 and 9 year old were attending school and I was surprised that libraries and classrooms did not have adequate resources. I thought I had something to offer and I wanted to help schools get the resources they needed to deliver quality education. It was a busy time and the campaign just added another layer of excitement. However, I had the support of my wife and we were committed to the cause.
The term politician, when used to describe a School Trustee, is a little unfitting to me. For me, being a School Trustee is not about being a politician, or a stepping-stone to a future in politics, but rather the municipal election is a political process and a necessary step to make a positive impact in our community. Thankfully, I have had the support of the Pembina Trails Ward II community in the past and I am asking for their continued support on the 26th of October.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?
If re-elected, my Pembina Trails Board experience is my most relevant asset, however, I find that being a parent of four children educated in Pembina Trails schools has cultivated my most valuable asset, which is the connection that I feel to families in our division.
My career working for Manitoba Hydro in energy conservation, finance and more recently as Chair of the Keeyask Advisory Group on Employment (focus on Indigenous employment) also compliments my role of School Trustee. I have experience leading government agencies, private sector and public sector firms, and community agencies towards a common goal, all necessary attributes for the role of School of Trustee.
A graduate of the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Management (Honours), and a life long learner, I know the importance of being present, engaged and I understand board governance.
What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee), and why are these issues important to you?
The next 4-year term will be challenging as Boards work through the upcoming Provincial Government changes to public education and changes to the funding formula for school divisions. Changes to the education funding formula could have a significant negative impact on the dollars available to Pembina Trails. Our Ward deserves strong representation and experienced leadership on the Board as we work with provincial funding that continues to be below the rate of inflation. I am committed to maintaining my proven track record and I will ensure our community voice is heard during the next term.
I will continue to support:
- A healthy and secure environment in schools and common areas;
- Data informed decisions;
- Teachers and staff working throughout the division;
- Respect for the needs and social development of all students;
- Programming for engagement and academic success;
- Continuous improvement for success in numeracy, literacy, and graduation;
- Programming to support Indigenous teaching and learners; and,
- More opportunities for community engagement.
Pembina Trails is a great place to raise and educate your children. Our community deserves the support of Board members who can work with others and who have demonstrated, through past and current actions, a genuine regard for improving our community.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
It has been an honour to serve the residents of Pembina Trails for the past 16 years. If re-elected, I commit to working hard, with creativity and understanding, to ensure Pembina Trails continues to meet the needs of our students and our community. On the 26th of October, let’s continue working together to build a strong future for our students and our community by entrusting me with your vote.
