Candidate Videos

We invited 2017 Trustee election candidates to share their thoughts on educational issues and their role as a trustee in a series of videos. 

We asked each participating candidate 4 questions. 

  1. Why do you want to be a trustee on the Edmonton Public School Board?
  2. What strengths and experience can you contribute to the work of the Board of Trustees for Edmonton Public Schools?
  3. What do you see as the 3 most important challenges facing public education and what do you believe should be done to address them?
  4. As a trustee, you have 1 of 9 votes at the decision-making table. How will you advance your goals for the next three years within this structure?
