My name is Cindy Turner and I am running for School Board Trustee for the Louis Riel School Division in Ward 1.

I wish to bring fresh ideas and positive solutions to the office of School Board Trustee in Ward 1 of the Louis Riel School Division.  I come with no personal agenda except to move the LRSD forward to be an excellent school district.  I understand the need to do more with less, and I am keenly interested in representing the community’s taxpayers in the next civic election.

I have significant governing board experience having been on the Unifor, formerly CEP, Local 191 executive board since 2010 and have been the Secretary Treasurer since 2012.  I am one of three trustees on the CEP Western Region Special Funds for Arbitration.  I have also served two terms as the Manitoba representative on the CEP Western Women’s Committee.

I have over 12 years of experience working in the finance department of United Way of Winnipeg and when elected I will bring a voice of reason and passion for education, along with fiscal good judgment.  I understand the processes of the big picture.  The image has to represent both the interest of the students and their educators.
