I had a great time knocking on doors last night near 4th Line & Louis St Laurent and meeting up with regular readers of my blog, like Andre (Thanks for reading!)
If you were going through that intersection last night, you know they are doing some repair work finally because going through the stop sign almost felt like an off road course. The kids love it by the way, but its not good on the suspension of the car.
Many of the people I spoke with were looking for updates on when the high school would begin construction and I’ll be sending Donna Danielli an email today to find out. Donna is our Public School Board Trustee who has worked very hard over the last 4 years.
With this election comes a change in the number of trustees for Milton. There are now 2 positions open for the October election, one for the “southern” wards 1,6,7 & 8 and the other for the” northern” wards of 2,3,4 & 5. This will provide them with more of an opportunity to concentrate their focus on a smaller area instead of the town as a whole.
School board trustees are often overlooked as a “minor” position and are not given the due they deserve. Hours upon hours of work are put into this job with almost very little recognition. I know from experience dealing with a number of trustees that this position is anything but “minor” It takes dedication and a lot of hard work to do what they do and to help ensure that as the town grows, so do the opportunities for our education system.
This election as you choose who you want to support for Regional Chair, Mayor, Regional Council, and Local Council (thats me!), take some time and research who you want to be your public and catholic school board trustee.
If you live in wards 2,3,4 &5 drop Donna a note as shes running for re-election at the public school board level. Tell her I sent you.
The evenings are becoming more comfortable for strolls (and door knocking) and Im looking to do some more tonight and later on this week. I hope to see you at the doors.
*edit* Thanks to Gary for letting me know I had the wards Donna was running in listed incorrectly.
