WSD Ward 2 school trustee candidates

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 15/10/2018 (637 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

One candidate will be elected to represent Ward 2 of the Winnipeg School Division. Neighbourhoods include Osborne Village, Riverview, and Lord Roberts. The candidates are:

• Chris Broughton - Broughton is running for re-election to the Winnipeg School Division board in Ward 2. Broughton was first elected to represent the ward in 2014. As a trustee, Broughton was a champion for safe and inclusive schools and led the implementation of a math task force. He served as chair of the finance committee since 2015 and was selected by his peers to be vice-chair of the board since 2016. He also volunteers with the École Riverview School Parent Advisory Council and the Fort Garry North Hockey Association.

The paramedic of 15 years says his priorities include: speaking out against provincial cuts and chronic underfunding of the education system; expanding full-day kindergarten and nursery programs by adding more schools; addressing student hunger by expanding nutrition/breakfast programs; and creating an Advocate Office for Parents of Students with Special Needs. The father of two lives in South Osborne.

• Michael Cardillo  - Cardillo is running to become the school trustee for the Winnipeg School Division board in Ward 2. The lifelong Winnipeg resident has a masters’ degree in soil science from the University of Manitoba and was a representative with the Graduate Students Association. He is a member of the Green Party of Manitoba and sits on the Green Party’s policy committee.

Cardillo’s priorities for the school division include: finding greater funding efficiency for essential educational programming; lobbying to change how the public school system is funded to reduce the tax burden on property and business owners; requiring all future curriculum development to be done from the perspective of teaching students to be ecologically aware and literate; and "improving the quality (competency and leadership) of the educators and administration."

Cardillo lives in Osborne Village.
