Alexandra Luggi and Lucille Duncan are the two women running for School District 91 Trustee.

Meet the candidates: School District 91

Alexandra Luggi and Lucille Duncan are both running in the upcoming election for School District 91 trustee.

Candidate Alexandra Luggi

I am a single parent of two school-aged children. I am currently employed as the Resource Coordinator for the Social Development Department

with the Nak’azdli Band. I am a part time Paramedic with the B.C. Ambulance Service as well as I am a certified Child Protection Mediator

and I am a member of the Professional Roster of Mediators through Mediate B.C.

I am a Volunteer Fire Fighter with the Fort St. James Volunteer Fire Department and I am a Hockey and Soccer mom, too.

I want our community to have an approachable and knowledgeable advocate to be their representative on our school board.

I have worked in the educational field as a tutor and Educational Assistant and as such I am aware of the obstacles families and students face

when faced with difficulties in the school system.

I want to be a voice for our community and our residents, especially those families that live in the outlying areas and send their children to our local schools.

Considering the situation this past summer and fall with Teachers Strike Action, I feel that the people of Fort. St. James, Tache and our surrounding communities need to have their voices heard and issues addressed.

I am also a proud graduate in 2006 of UNBC with a  Bachelor of Arts Degree in First Nations Studies and Community Planning.

I have experience as a Student Representative Board Member for the College of New Caledonia as well as having sat on three Senate Committees at the University of Northern British Columbia.

I bring to the table a zest for education as I am a lifelong learner. I am a good listener and I can express myself effectively in a public forum to the benefit of our community.

I hope that the community will allow me the opportunity to be the Area 6 School Trustee member.

 

Candidate Lucille Duncan

My name is Lucille Duncan. I was born and raised in Fort St. James, B.C.

I have worked in the field health and education for many years in First Nations and urban communities as an advocate, substitute, school counsellor, support worker, family child care worker and a Cultural and Language teacher.

The reason why I am running for School District 91 Public Trustee is that I want to be a voice for the parents interest and for the betterment of students to achieve their highest potential.

I firmly believe that education is very important and I want to be a part of that process to ensure that every child has that opportunity and access to the highest quality education available to them. Whether it’s high quality curriculum, current technology updates, supporting student’s learning needs, addressing barriers that youth face today, transparency/good governance, bilingual support, special needs, extracurricular activates, and effective learning environments.

If I am the successful candidate, then it shows that the community members have faith in me to be a voice for their children’s education.
