My name is May Xie and I am running for HDSB trustee for Wards 3 and 6. One cannot live in both wards simultaneously. Rather, parents must know that their representative is someone who they can trust, who is accessible, and who values their input. I will be an objective advocate for parents and students in both diverse communities. My goal is to help improve the public school program. I am not a career politician. I am the only candidate with strong accounting and management background, and will ensure board accountability and appropriate allocation of resources. I am committed to ensuring all students (including students with special needs and vulnerable students) are supported in their personal growth and academic development in an enriched learning community that prepares them for their future.
During my campaign, I have knocked many doors and talked to hundreds of residents in Ward 3 and 6. I am aware of the following issues: changes on administrative policy re extracurricular activities due to liability insurance issues, which creates extra burdens for schools and parents to carry on extracurricular activities; school capacity issues; funding issues, school bus issues, privacy concerns.
I hear your concerns and I will be your voice! If I am elected, I will make sure any significant policy change will be carefully reviewed and practical and clearly communicated to students and parents; I will also work closely with Town and regional councillors and our MPP on resources and funding.
Please feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions or concerns. I am accessible and always value your input. Together we are stronger!
