I have had the pleasure of working alongside Andrea at the Halton District School Board for the last four years. She was Chair of the Board for the first three years of my term and the reason ran for Chair in this past year. She was a mentor, a strong advocate for the community and a source of wisdom and advice as I took on the role she had mastered over the past four years. Prior to becoming a Trustee, I looked to Andrea as a model of integrity within the school board. Andrea is an amazing leader who creates a foundation of honesty and respect for everyone she works with. Her knowledge and understanding of regional issues give her valuable insight into the role of Regional Chair. Along with her undeniable expertise and knowledge, Andrea has always fostered positive discussions and collaborated to find the best outcomes in difficult situations.
Andrea has my full support in her bid to become Regional Chair of Halton. Her dedication, knowledge, and commitment to representing the community of Halton in a way that all voices are able to be valued and heard is paramount to the success. I have the utmost confidence that Andrea would be an ideal representative of the greater Halton Community.
