Public School Board Trustee - Wards 3 & 4

There are 2 candidates vying for this position on the province's largest school board. They are Lynn Cameron Ferguson (Incumbent), and Jadine Kohut.

Lynn Cameron Ferguson handily won this seat in 2004, running to replace the outgoing incumbent. Aged 54, her main issue is school funding - she wants more. Well, she wants more schools, AND more funding. She's well thought of as an activist for student causes.

EDIT: Lynn's website can be found here.

Jadine Kohut is a 39 year-old stay-at-home mom of 3, and she is angry at what seems to be an "old boys backroom mentality" at the board, especially as relates to prioritizing school building and repairs. She wants more transparent and accountible governance of the system by the board. A particular area of interest to her is a new Public high school in the North Central Calgary area.
