United SD61 is a progressive coalition of five individuals brought together by our common belief in the importance of public education as a cornerstone of our society and our communities. Incumbents Edith Loring-Kuhanga, Diane McNally, Deborah Nohr, and candidates Rob Paynter and Jordan Watters request your vote for Greater Victoria School District 61 School Trustee in the Municipal Elections on November 15th.
Individual Platforms – Common Goals
We are independent candidates choosing to work collaboratively in our campaign for (re)election because we share core values and believe in the importance of having a diversity of progressive voices at the school board. Each coalition member brings unique perspectives, areas of expertise, and professional experience to the table. We are united in our unwavering commitment to a fully funded public education system capable of meeting the needs and enriching the lives of all students.
We believe the Greater Victoria School District SD61 Needs:
- Decision making based on a renewed partnership with parents, students and staff
- Public engagement on class size, composition and learning support
- A Trustee-led budget committee for increased transparency
- A strategic plan that guides SD61 into the future
Our individual platforms are highlighted on our individual pages on this website (see tabs above), and are fleshed out in more detail on each of our websites.
