UPDATE! Results of the PG Voting

As you know we are voting 5 candidates to serve in the Prince George Electoral Area 1 in addition to the 2 incumbents from Mackanzie and McBride. Please research all 13 candidates and plan to vote on October 15. Accountability is important in public education.

Answers to the following questions from the All-Candidates Forum on September 28 are provided on our website here.

NAME Introduction:
Tell us about yourself and why you are running or what you hope to achieve.

Question 1 from CUPE Local 3742: 
What do you view as your responsibility in relation to senior management?

Question 2 from PGDTA: 
School District 57 continues to face a six-year shortage of teachers in all of its communities.  This has already resulted in over 20 thousand hours of lost support to students and District assessment data shows that vulnerable students are not reaching education achievement benchmarks in multiple areas.
What are your ideas for teacher recruitment and retention and how would you advocate at both local and provincial levels for a fully funded serious recruitment and retention plan

Question 3 from DPAC: 
What does accountability mean to you and increasing accountability in SD57?
