Why are you running to become a trustee?
I am running to become a trustee in order for there to be a voice on the board to keep our rural and small town schools open and viable options .
If we let these schools close, then those communities face a bleak future without schools, and the young and growing families that they bring. This challenge is not small but we need to start with the idea that keeping the schools open is goal to aim for and work from that perspective.We need to get creative and see what we can come up with to achieve this goal.
What are the key issues currently facing education in Chatham-Kent?
The key issue from my perspective is the declining situation in our rural and small town schools
