I’m delighted that Barb Parrott is putting her name forward for School Board Trustee with COPE.
Barb is a friend, mentor, honourary life member of VESTA and the BCTF, retired reading recovery teacher and perpetual activist. Barb is a trade unionist who respects and understands Collective Agreements and their role in the school districts and has deep rooted values that are consistent with mine.
Barb is a consummate chair and both appreciates and honours process, and I trust that she would embody a School Trustee who stands on principles and advocates for the needs of the district.
