SD 85: Mike Schnurr

The School Board has only one employee, the superintendent of which a trustee has only one vote.

1. What would you do to resolve the teacher’s job action?

2. What can SD 85 do to keep schools open in the face of potential funding cuts?

3. Is SD 85 undercutting private business by renting out a publicly supported property, Robert Scott elementary school?

4. Why should people vote for you?

1. The School Board has only one employee, the superintendent of which a trustee has only one vote. School trustees have no say or input into any matter to do with teachers.

2. To my knowledge there are not any schools closing or funding cuts for SD 85.

3. I believe a business person who decides to move that business to a location that would be better for the customers is entitled to do so. Should Robert Scott Elementary be the only available location with showers and a proper gym for a Fitness Studio, SD85 would not be undercutting private business.

4. I chose to run in the Western Zone as there were already three incumbents running in Port Hardy for two seats. I believe I can make a positive contribution to SD85 as a trustee. I was the PAC Chair at PHSS, I started the District PAC and served as the chair, and I was the PAC chair at Eagle View Elementary. I served on the board of governors for North Island College for six years and I am very familiar with policy governance. I’ve served on the FiLoMi days committee and was the chair of the Advisory Planning/Harbour Commission for Port Hardy. I have lived in Port Hardy for sixteen years and had three daughters go through the school system and currently have one daughter in PHSS.
