My name is Betty Walters and I have put my name forward for the position of trustee for the Quesnel School District 28.

As we approach November 19th election day, let us not forget it is not just about Mayor and Council.  We also have an important responsibility to vote for School Board Trustees.  Schools are an integral part of our community and we as parents, taxpayers and residents need to take this responsibility seriously.

The important role that trustees play in public education is based on their representation of the public. Since all of the public can not be “at the table” for debate, trustees must do their best to represent as many views as possible. If you were at an event where someone else had to speak for you, would you just pick someone out of the crowd or would you put some real thought into your choice?

Trustees are there to represent you!  Who will you pick?

I hope you pick me!
