Before voters head to the polls for the 2018 general election on Saturday, October 20, the Peak asked the eight candidates campaigning for a seat on Powell River Board of School Trustees: Why should City of Powell River and qathet Regional District residents vote for you?
Here is the reply from Paula Stewart:
I was born and raised in Powell River and went to school from K-12 in School District 47.
I spent 15 years in the Financial Industry and I now run the Housing Program in Tla'amin Nation.
I am interested in empowering the children and parents to create the schools that they would like to attend and be a part of with a positive environment that will keep them interested, engaged and supported in every step of the way.
What's implemented now is what moves us into the future.
