Why I run

Posted by glass4yorkcentre on May 15, 2016 at 8:00 PM

I have had the privilege of being involved in politics in some capacity for years. I have had the opportunity to meet heroes, icons, and mentors. And I have been grateful for those opportunities. But fourteen years after I took out my first membership in a political party I have made the decision to put my own name on a ballot for a second time. I made this decision because I believe I can make a difference in the system for the better.

After years of being forced to navigate my way through the obscene red-tape in the Toronto District School Board as a parent of a child with special needs, I came to a clear and present realization: It should not be this hard. Parents should not have to wrestle to obtain the best possible education for their children. That is why I would create a special education facilitator to guide parents through a system that was not built with the concerns of parents or children in mind.

I believe politics can have a positive influence on people's lives. As a trustee I will work with others on the board to implement my five point plan.

1. I will advocate for a fiscally responsible budget.

2. I will re-examine the current catchments.

3. I will recommend that we consolidate TDSB field operationswith the city to create community hubs out of our local schools.

4. I will work to ensure that every child in the TDSB is able to receive the education that they deserve. And;

5. I will urge the TDSB to appoint an ombudsperson, to ensure fiscal and democratic accountability.
