A: I am currently running in this election for school board trustee with the Grand Erie District School Board. I am the incumbent and would like the opportunity to continue on the path of change for this school board. I was born and raised in this area, my children all attended schools in this area, so this gives me a unique perspective to bring to the boardroom table. My background is in small business accounting, giving me experience with budgeting, business management and corporate decision making. We have serious issues like cyber bullying and teen suicide that need to be more seriously and actively addressed with participation from the whole community. Let’s continue to educate students and teachers on environmental issues and the responsibility to protect our natural resources.
I believe in inclusivity! Let’s make our whole school system completely inclusive for ALL students!
It takes a village to raise a child, so it will take our whole community to raise the thousands of students within our district. Let’s team up together to make a difference.
