School Trustee Candidate: Cathy Riddle acclaimed in – Kettle Valley East

School District 51: Riddle, Cathy acclaimed as school trustee

Cathy Riddle

My name is Cathy Riddle and I have had the honour of representing you as one of SD51’s Board of Education Trustees for the past 12 years. I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue in that role for the new four-year election term.

This year, instead of asking for your support, I am thanking you for the support shown to me over the past 12 years and would like to confirm that I do not take being “acclaimed” for granted. I want you to know that you can still hold me to the same standard of accountability, and the same responsibility you expect from someone who has won by vote in the election process.

I am committed to standing up for the needs of children and youth and will continue to work hard to meet that commitment.

I believe in transparency, responsible governance and engaging stakeholder partnerships. I will continue to work with our staff, teachers and communities to ensure student achievement. I will continue to advocate for stable, predictable funding and ensure your child and our staff are safe in all our school facilities.

I want to see our students come to school excited to learn, feeling safe and ready to take on the future in front of them. By working together we can ensure there are resources available for our students, we can address the unique needs of our diverse district and maintain the great working relationships that have been formed with our community and stakeholders. It does take an entire community to raise a child and our Boundary Communities work extremely hard to meet that goal. I am proud to be part of that collaboration.
