Dawn Danko In the News – Parents Fear Losing Neighbourhood Community Schools

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

As the election on October 27th looms closer, I have been thinking back over the past year when I became involved with the battle to save our local community schools from closing.

While my community was ultimately successful in saving our local school (after a sustained ten month long campaign), I can’t help but think about how different the end result might have been with different leadership at the Board.

I recently came across this article from October 2013 where speaking about quality of information the public is provided with,  I am quoted as saying:

“That’s why we’re all questioning the data that they’re presenting to us,”

I think that one statement perhaps captures the biggest asset that I believe I can bring to the board if elected trustee – I have the experience and educational background necessary to question the data that policy decisions are based on – and the will to seek out and listen to the grass roots opinions of our valuable community members when they ask questions.

Sincerely,

Dawn Danko
