School District 70: Pat Dahlquist - Trustee candidate

  • Oct. 30, 2014 3:00 p.m.

I offer good, honest, logical participation on a school board who must work together for all students in SD70.

I was first elected in 1999 and have served for the past 15 years as a trustee.  I was previously employed as an education assistant (EA) and a secretary for the district; I bring a wealth of knowledge to a trusteeship.

I understand the many challenges school districts in the province are facing and I believe the government needs to step up and provide more funding for public education.

Through our provincial body, the British Columbia School Trustees Association (BCSTA) we are lobbying the government constantly for appropriate funding.

In my opinion, the needs of students and staff should come first and foremost in any decisions that come to SD70’s goard table.

We have a wonderful loyal, dedicated staff who provide some terrific programs in this district, music, the arts, sports, alternative programs, special services, just to mention a few—we don’t want to lose them.

I hope that you will let me continue to work for the students, parents and staff in the Alberni Valley and the West Coast to help create the best education that we can possible provide.
