Bloomquist seeks school board seat

School District 69: Bloomquist, Willow — Board of Trustees

  • Oct. 28, 2014 12:00 p.m.

Willow Bloomquist is seeking a seat on the School District 69 Board of Trustees representing Area G (Parksville/Qualicum Beach/French Creek, Dashwood, Englishman River/Lasqueti Island).

“Entering in to the election race for a school board position in District 69 the second time around finds me in the same mindset as I was three years ago, when I ran, but with a vastly different view of what the position means,” Bloomquist said in a news release. “I am still a wife and a mother to two amazing children, except this time they are actually old enough to be in the school system. I am still passionate about public education and ensuring our district operates while keeping the best interests of its students at the forefront of all decision making. What I am no longer doing is operating under the false impression that our school board is ‘responsible’ for the issues we face in our district.”

“I would like to be given the opportunity to use my variety of business skills, and knowledge, to work within our district as a school trustee in order to provide responsible stewardship in reaching our communities educational goals and at the same time apply pressure to the governing bodies that are making it difficult for us to do so. I hope you will consider giving me the chance to work within a ‘team’ of board members that can do just that.”
