Dawn Danko In The News – Busing Should Be Extended To All MacNab Students

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

If I have learned anything during my campaign for Ward 7 – Hamilton Central Mountain Public School Trustee, it is how important it is to listen to parents when they identify an issue with their child’s education.

A recent example that was pointed out to me while talking to parents at the door is the dreadful situation facing Armstrong students and many other students across the central mountain who now face a daily HSR bus commute of over two hours.

From my comments in a recent story in the Hamilton Community News:

According to the school board, transportation costs are nothing compared to the cost of keeping schools open, so we need to find the money to meet the needs of our students,” said Danko.

“The school board made this mess when they made their high school decisions. They need to be responsible for the students affected.”

“Certainly we must have capacity in our high schools that can deal with a shift in boundaries of a block or two.”

I was at the meeting at Sherwood High School on October 7 to check out the candidates for trustee for ward 7. I was impressed with Dawn Danko.  I had read what she had written in the Mountain News and saw the election signs in our neighbourhood, but otherwise knew nothing about her.  She was challenged twice during the meeting, but she didn’t back down from the issues.  She was able to explain her position in a concise, professional and confident manner.  I see her as someone who wouldn’t back down from difficult issues and would fight for what she is passionate about for the families and schools in ward 7.  She has my vote for trustee.

This is the first time I've had a sign for any election, ever.  Gotta show my support!  Good for you for standing up for what you believe in.

Kids today don't know how to think for themselves and think they deserve everything. I'm voting for Dawn because she will bring some reality back to education.

There are too many Trustees that get elected on single issue activist agendas. We need someone like Dawn who is fair to everyone.

Dawn does what she thinks is right and won't take no for an answer.
