Why Are You Running for School Trustee?

I am running for School trustee because of my devotion to my community and as a way to give back. The education of our children is and should be of the upmost importance. There is no greater tool or power than that of a great education. In order to give this power to our children we need to also ensure that our teachers and support staff also have every tool possible so they can work at their very best doing what they do best.   

I bring to the table many years working on boards of the most prevalent would be my time sitting on the Board for the United Way Brandon and District, where I sat on the community impact committee as while as the financial committee.  

My primary concern is our need to have our educational programming fit the needs of all our students and making sure the resources are available to all those who need it. This does also include ensuring our infrastructure and vehicles are in adequate and acceptable condition. 

I believe the position of School Trustee is that of being selected to be part of great team. A team selected by the people living in Brandon to be their voice at the local level but as while as to be their voice to the provincial government. I am ready to be part of this great team and put in the HARD WORK that is necessary.
