Strong Leadership

From Dec 2017 to Dec 2021, Andrea’s trustee colleagues elected her Chair of the Board for four annual terms. They trusted Andrea to lead, speak and advocate on their behalf.

Andrea has partnered and built relationships with local, provincial and federal leaders.

When difficult decisions need to be made, she analyzes the issues from several angles and is never afraid to ask uncomfortable questions; always keeping the organizational goals in mind.

Bold Advocacy

When issues arise, public education needs a voice. As Chair of the Halton District School Board, Andrea advocated to the Minister of Education, the Premier, MPPs and other elected officials through letters, phone calls and one-on-one conversations to shed light on their decisions’ potential or realized consequences. She often spoke with the media to inform the public of potential outcomes and encourage engagement when necessary.

Fiscally Responsible

Annually, as a trustee for the Halton District School Board, Andrea considered and approved operational and capital budgets for the upcoming year. For the 2022-2023 school year, the combined operational and capital budget is $1 Billion.

Budgets are tight and tough decisions must be made. The Region follows a comparable budget process.

N

Governance of Large Organization

The Halton District School Board serves 66,000 students in over 100 facilities with 10,000 staff with an operational budget of $850 million.
As Trustee and Chair, Andrea provided strategic vision through the development of two multi-year strategic plans and sound policy leadership.

Similar public sector governance structures and processes exist between the school boards and the Region.

Great Constituent Relations

Parents have come to Andrea seeking solutions for their children’s needs for the past eight years.
My cell phone number is clearly provided on the school board website and I have welcomed each call and email. I look forward to continuing to help the people of Halton in the role of Regional Chair.” Andrea

Growth Management

Halton is one of the best places to live in the country and the high rate of development reflects this.  Along with this development comes the requirement for expansion of infrastructure. For the Region, this means roads, children’s services, waste collection, community housing, sewage treatment, paramedic services, etc.  Growth management is a huge concern with the school boards. As families come to raise their children in the best region in the country schools need to accommodate them and educational staff need to teach them and buses need to transport them. Growth management has been a primary focus for the past eight years.

Values:

Accountability, Transparency, Integrity, Collaboration, and Continuous Improvement
