Building education through community

I strongly believe in public education and I care deeply that it is inclusive, resourced, and fair. As a mother, I want a future where all those who attend school in Ward C, and throughout Edmonton, have strong educational opportunities. Recent funding cuts, COVID-19, and a challenging political environment make the choices for EPSB Trustees even more important. All students, regardless of their needs, deserve a high-quality education. My experience and passion for public education, coupled with my business and advocacy background give me the tools necessary to be an effective school board trustee. I know how to build community and bring people together by listening first and turning ideas into action. This is why I am running to be Ward C’s next Public School Board Trustee.

I look forward to serving, connecting, and sharing my vision with the constituents, families, students, staff and teachers in Ward C.

Kassie is a passionate advocate for public education. I believe that her experience and successful track record of community engagement and collaboration will make her a much needed voice around at the Board table. As a parent of two small children, I trust that Kassie has our children’s best interest at heart. I happily endorse Kassie for EPSB, Ward C.

Having known Kassie for a decade, and having worked along her on some complex and impactful projects, I fully endorse her as an EPSB Trustee candidate. She demonstrates servant leadership, is conscientious and ethical, and works hard to overdeliver on what she has committed to. Our city is lucky to have her and EPSB would benefit greatly from having her as a Trustee.
