Candidate: Jaime Massey

First-time candidate Jaime Massey is vying for a seat as a city rep to School District 51.

Jaime Massey is running for a seat on the School District 51 board of education.

My name is Jaime Massey. I am 33 years old and have lived in Grand forks nearly my whole life. As a child I attended both Perley elementary and GFSS completing graduation in 1999. I am married to my husband (Sean) and we have two wonderful boys, Braden who is 10 and Jordan who is 8.

Through the years I have been a stay at home mom while volunteering for the Community Christmas Hamper Program and I am currently in my second year as Perley Elementary PAC vice president.

Last year I started working as a noon hour supervisor at Perley which I discovered quickly was a very enriching experience. Spending so much more time with all of your children and grandchildren began to inspire me to do a little more and think about how I could make more of a difference. That was when I decided to run for School Trustee.

I am running for School Trustee because I believe that I might be able to add a new perspective to our Board. I have children as well as nieces and nephews in our school system making me directly affected and accountable for the decisions our School board makes.  I want to see every child in our district succeed to the best of his or her ability. Education is so much more than just academics. We are creating and encouraging future adults. We all need to work together for our children’s future. We need to ensure that our education system is working for them and that every little piece of that system can work harmoniously together.

I hope you will give me a chance to represent you and your children on our School Board by voting for me as Trustee for the City of Grand Forks. Thank you.
