Why are you running to become a trustee?
I have been a trustee for the last 16 years, the last 2 years as chair of the LKDSB.
I want to continue to make sure the rural and small-town communities have a voice in our public education system.
What are the key education issues in C-K?
Low student enrolment in some area schools – students can’t get the courses they need because there are not enough students to fill a class.
Aging school facilities.
What skills and experience best suit you for this role and what are your goals if elected?
Sixteen years as a trustee, with the last two as chair of the board.
I have a very good working relationship with my fellow trustees, along with the director of education, superintendents and all educational staff.
I keep an open mind and listen to what the communities are saying.
I always return calls from the public when school issues occur.
