Reg Si­mon run­ning for sep­a­rate school trustee

The Standard (Elliot Lake) - - ELECTION -

i have been a mem­ber of our lady of Fa­tima Church since 1972 and a res­i­dent of Elliot lake for 46 years.

my wife Carol and i have three chil­dren and three grand­chil­dren. all our chil­dren attended our lady of lour­des School and our grand­chil­dren are en­rolled in the Catholic school sys­tem in south­ern on­tario.

i spent four years as a trustee on the north Shore Sep­a­rate School board be­fore amal­ga­ma­tion with the Sault board.

Work­ing and trav­el­ling out of town prevented me from con­tin­u­ing to run for the po­si­tion of trustee. Since i have re­cently re­tired, i am look­ing for­ward to serv­ing the north Shore district once again on the huron-su­pe­rior Catholic district School board.

a strong voice and ac­count­abil­ity will be my fo­cus and com­mit­ment to the par­ents, teach­ers and stu­dents of our Catholic com­mu­nity schools.

our Catholic schools con­tin­u­ally come un­der at­tack by gov­ern­ments try­ing to elim­i­nate the Catholic ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem. i be­lieve our Catholic schools are unique and pro­vide a high qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion based on Catholic val­ues.

par­ents are the first ed­u­ca­tors and with the help of teach­ers, sup­port staff and board mem­bers work­ing to­gether, we can en­sure equity for all chil­dren in our schools.

i am com­mit­ted to hav­ing a strong voice in poli­cies that guide our schools to en­sure that the needs of all small Catholic school are ad­dressed.

i am count­ing on your sup­port.
