School District 85: Peterson, CW — Trustee candidate, Area 2

Members of the Board are responsible for establishing policies and procedures for operating public schools, budgeting for efficient and effective operation, and listening and giving voice to local communities’ values and priorities, both with the Board and on behalf of the Board with the Provincial Government.

After living in Alert Bay for the last 37 years, first as a shipwright, and eventually working in numerous support staff positions for School District 85 for nearly 30 years, I have been asked to run for trustee. Having held a variety of elected positions in the past, including Union executive at local, regional and provincial levels, Credit Union board member, Municipal Councillor, etc., I took a break from most such things, assuming the role of a recovering politician.

People who know me know I am a person who, as a member of the Board, will work to advocate for students, staff and parents in the community with the Board, and to promote the interests of the Board in its dealings with the Provincial Government to provide the best public education possible.

As a candidate for one of two School Board seats in Area 2 to represent the people of Alert Bay, ‘Namgis and Whe-La-La-U reserves, Malcolm Island including Sointula, and Port Alice; four of us are running. As a strong believer in providing quality public education, I look forward to being “the new guy”.
