Financial Analysis Skills
The Edmonton Public School Board has an Operating Budget of $1.2 Billion. There is considerable responsibility that comes with managing a budget this size and it requires financial analysis experience.
As a past School Trustee and Budget Committee Chair I have experience balancing school board budgets and financial analysis skills. 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 demonstrated respect for taxpayer dollars throughout my term as School Trustee.
I voted to cut School Trustee Expense Accounts from $27,000/year to $11,780/year.
I voted to reduce the salary for the Director of Education by $17,000.
Over my four years as School Trustee, I spent Zero on airfare.
Over my four years as School Trustee, I spent Zero on hotels.
With the current provincial government, education funding is very scarce. Financial analysis experience matters more than ever to ensure funding is spent directly in our classrooms.
“I am the only candidate with experience balancing multi-billion dollar budgets and I will use my experience to ensure that each spending decision at the Edmonton Public School Board is made wisely and efficiently."
