I believe that the best local public policy is created when elected officials work well with one another, and consistently maintained that this year offers a unique opportunity to clear the table and vote for independent candidates.

As an independent trustee,

  • I will fight to ensure our budget priorities remain focused on our primary mandate: teaching excellence in safe and inclusive schools.

  • I will be free to cast my vote based on public consultation and the determination that the decision furthers the school district’s primary mandate.

  • I will be free to work with whoever supports the priorities of the voters who elected me.

  • I will be free to listen to stakeholders.

VSB is a local governance board and not a lawmaking body featuring a Government and an Opposition. Because of this, I believe I will best serve VSB by remaining independent and pledge to do so.

This year, take your independence back in local politics. Vote for independent candidates who will put you first.
