I won the election! Thanks to all the volunteers who helped, everyone for voting, and the three other candidates who also put their names forward to represent Portsmouth, Trillium, and Meadowbrook-Strathcona as School Board Trustee! You made it a great race!
I couldn't have done it without the support of the best family and amazing community! I'm really excited to learn more about the role and work hard to try and make people more aware of what Trustees do and how the whole machinery works! We have orientation sessions in November, and our four-year term begins on December 1st! Lots to learn, lots of questions to ask, and hopefully lots that I can contribute.
Thanks to everyone for being a part of this wild process, and hopefully it encourages a few other people to step up and try running for something down the road! It's not as scary and intimidating as I thought it would be, and the whole process was really positive. It was a lot of work (and took up way more head space than I thought it would, especially as the election date got closer) but everyone I talked to was super encouraging and supportive. I’m not sure if this website will stay up after December, but I’ll hopefully get some updates on LDSB twitter, FB, and website protocol. Thanks again for everyone’s support and I’m always happy to chat about the process, what it’s like to run for the first time, school board-related issues, school-related issues, or any concerns you might have.
