Schools This Week

I've been standing outside many schools this week talking to parents and handing out leaflets. Perhaps you've seen me! People are a little nervous at first, wondering what I'm "selling", but are pleasantly surprised when they realize I'm a trustee candidate.

Here's a few comments I've received:

"You're the first trustee I've ever seen."
"Is she running for President, Mom?"
"I've never known who to vote for before. Thank you."

Mostly, they just say thank you and promise to read my leaflet later. I see standing on the sidewalk outside their child's school as the first step to improving communication between parents and trustees. Trustees need to be in the community and people need to know they are there for THEM.
