My name is Cathy Riddle and I have been a trustee for the board of education for SD51 for nine years.

I am seeking your support for re-election in the November 2011 election.

I have lived in Greenwood for 21 years and although this in not my hometown, it has become my “family town.”

I have two successful graduates from BCSS and my third will graduate this coming June. With this, I have over 17 years of experience with children in the education system and believe in what students can achieve through their desires.

I have extensive experience in working with youth both in the educational setting and outside the school community.

I have been involved in youth programming throughout the Boundary district supporting groups from Beaverdell to Christina Lake.

I host events to raise awareness on youth issues and provide youth an avenue to have a voice, I believe in our inspiring young adults and will support them in any way that I can.

I believe that I bring integrity, openness and a solid knowledge base to the board.

I have experience in working collaboratively with many organizations and am not afraid to roll up my sleeves and jump in when the going gets tough.

This past year has shown me how difficult yet rewarding this job can be as we worked through the school closure process and bussing issues.

This verified for me the power that communication and dialogue can have when making decisions.

While on the board I have held the position of policy chair for eight years and have been the Kootenay Boundary Branch executive representative for the past three years.

I sit on the finance committee and attend many of the other necessary meetings.

Again, I ask for your support in the November Elections.

– Cathy Riddle is incumbent trustee for Area E – Kettle Valley East
