Simply, Salmon Arm has been good to me and my family and I wish to give something back.
For 40 years I have been part of public education as a school teacher. I have watched the role of school trustee change and I am now convinced that role is uncertain and needs to be redefined.
I believe that the role should be to defend public education and to explain to the provincial government the painful impact on the system and children of their decisions.
Such is my motivation.
