Jane Williams is running for a seat on the Board of Trustees for School District 69, representing Area G (Parksville/Qualicum Beach/French Creek, Dashwood, Englishman River/Lasqueti Island).
“I believe that as a trustee it is imperative to hear the voice of the community and to continually advocate for all students regardless of their abilities,” Williams said in a news release. “It is also vital to have passion for the public education system and to recognize that the most difficult decisions to make are those where equally deserving possibilities cannot be equally supported.”
“Over the years, I have been privileged to chair a number of committees and boards in the interests of public education, from being chair and vice chair of the Qualicum Board of Education, to chairing and participating in several provincial and Vancouver Island Trustee organizations and committees. In this district, I was actively involved in early learning programs and enjoyed my role as trustee liaison for several schools. I have been a team player who recognized the importance of a unified voice. I look forward to bringing your voice to the Board table and to working for student success in our district and across the province. Thank you for your support.”
