As a past School Trustee and Budget Committee Chair I have experience balancing school board budgets.
I balanced a $3.1 Billion Operating Budget, and I have experience analyzing budgets line-by-line which will be a big asset to the Edmonton Public School Board. I voted to cut School Trustee Discretionary Expense Accounts from $27,000/year to $11,780/year. I also demonstrated respect for taxpayers by spending ZERO on Airfare and Hotels over four years. With the current provincial government, education funding is very scarce. Experience Matters more than ever to ensure funding is spent directly in our classrooms.
“I am the only candidate with experience balancing budgets of over $3 Billion and I will use my experience to ensure that each spending decision at the Edmonton Public School Board is made wisely and efficiently."
