School District 70: Larry Ransom - Trustee candidate

  • Oct. 30, 2014 2:00 p.m.

Elected to the School Board in 1997, I am completing my sixth term and sixth year as chairman.

Students will be encouraged to stay in school by developing programs recognizing their different learning styles and environment where all students can successfully complete their graduation requirements.

I am interested in maintaining opportunities for students in fine arts, music and sports programs and courses related to career development with emphasis on trades and technical training.

My leadership and experience in decisions that benefit students and their schools and the neighbourhoods they live in is why I’m asking voters for re-election.

I have been privileged in serving the community as an elected school board trustee and chair of the board, a role that is challenging yet rewarding. During the new Alberni District Secondary School project, a complicated political process involving the school district, Ministry of Education, capital planning and the City of Port Alberni in extensive lobbying, negotiating, planning, and completion of the new ADSS, is a highlight as chairman.

When students demonstrate their learning or test their leadership skills at school events culminating with district graduation ceremonies each year, I am thankful for the opportunity to be a school board trustee.
