Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?
As a new parent whose children will be entering the public school system very shortly, and as someone who greatly values education, I feel this would be an excellent way to get involved and do what I can to help maximize school environments.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?
Education wise, I graduated from the University of Manitoba with an Honors degree in Microbiology. A few years later I returned to Red River College and once again graduated with Honors from the Medical Laboratory Sciences program and am currently employed as a Med Lab Technologist in one of Winnipeg's largest Microbiology labs.
In terms of business, I owned and operated a franchise restaurant in downtown Winnipeg for several years and probably gained more valuable knowledge there than I did during my four years of university.
And in terms of real life, I'm well traveled, well-rounded and bring a straight forward and common sense approach to everything. I also have a great sense of humor.
What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as School Trustee, and why are these issues important to you?
- Fiscal Responsibility. Millions of dollars are spent annually and they must be spent efficiently and effectively.
- High Quality Education. Giving our children the opportunity to maximize their potential is the least we can do for our future.
- Increase Physical and Health Education. More and more children are playing sports on Xbox/Playstation and less are playing outdoors. We need to work to reverse this trend.
What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?
I appreciate the diversity. Being a minority myself, I think it's great that people of all different backgrounds get to come together.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
Seeing as how all 4 incumbents have proudly served for 8 years now, I feel that it may be time to get a new voice and some new perspective on the School Board. And I would like to provide that new voice and provide that new perspective.
I have been living in this school division for the last 15 years and my children will be attending schools in this division as well, so I can promise that I will do my best to fairly look out for the best interests of the taxpayers and everyone involved in the education system, and most importantly, the best interests of our children.
