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.”
