“Power to Our Parents” is a simple platform. As School Board Trustee for Ward 8&9, I would dedicate myself to empowering parents, advocating for parental choice and listening to parental voice. I will support and serve you to find the best educational opportunities for your children, whether it be public school, charter, homeschool or private school. My affiliation with the CBE should not bias me in supporting the best education for your child. Furthermore, your voice on policy is important. You deserve to know the facts, so that you can give informed consent/dissent on the various issues that will come up. You foot the bill for all the employees of the Calgary Board of Education, and thus, you deserve and are entitled to a dedicated and committed advocate for your child. “He who pays the piper, calls the tunes." If elected, I will write a monthly update to keep parents informed and involved.
