Why Are You Runnning For School Trustee?

I am running for School Trustee because I am committed to the power of education to change lives.

  • My primary educational concerns include:
    • educational programming to meet the needs of all students
    • Truth and Reconciliation calls to action on education
    • reasonable class sizes
    • safe and respectful schools
    • an increased Grade 12 graduation rate
    • sufficient programming for English as a second language to address the growing diversity of Brandon.
  • Funding: Education is funded by public tax dollars. Collectively we must effectively lobby the province for adequate funding for education in the Brandon School Division in order to prevent cuts to positions and services.
  • Each community has different needs. School Trustees are your local voice and connection to the provincial government.
  • My experience as a School Trustee will be an asset following the election.  We need new trustees to bring fresh opinions forward, as well as the knowledge of experienced trustees for an effective education system.
  • Having been a Brandon resident for over 30 years, I have an understanding of the values of our community and would like to represent those values on the Brandon School Division Board of Trustees.
