Editor’s note; Below are the two school board candidate profiles that were missed last week.

Tanya Boudier

I came to Prince Rupert to raise my family and to give my husband, Glen Irving, an opportunity to teach as a teacher on call.

We have resided here since 2006 and consider Prince Rupert our home.

Our son, Sam, is a student at Pineridge Elementary. Over the past 3 years, I have been an active member of his school, participating on the executive for the Parent Advisory Council as well as part of the School Planning Committee. I have volunteered my time professionally as an Occupational Therapist within the schools. I have observed first hand the important link between school and home in fostering successful learners. I have also seen the dedicated group of individuals we have working with our

children.

I am an Occupational Therapist currently employed by Northern Health. I have successfully secured additional funding and grants to design and implement a Falls Harm Reduction program into residential care and am now working on extending this program across the continuum of care in Prince Rupert. I have experience working with a diverse range of people toward a common goal. My training and experience have taught me the importance of clear, open communication and collaboration when addressing complex

issues.

I have served on the board for the College of Occupational Therapists of BC and am the current chairperson for the Quality Assurance Committee.

I am a member of the Health Sciences Association union.  I am currently a union steward and have acted as the Occupational Health and Safety steward in past

years.

I have a strong commitment to safety and advocacy. Our children need safe schools to learn in.  If elected, my focus will be on finding local solutions that fit our community and advocating for the provincial changes necessary to support our schools. I am fully committed to being available to families, students, staff and other stakeholders as we are all in this together. I am not afraid to speak up when needed.

Thank-you for your support on November 19th. I encourage everyone to come out and vote—be part of the solution!

Russell Wiens

Russell Wiens married to Colleen for 34 years, two daughters who both graduated from PRSS and have gone onto successful careers: one as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and the other with a Masters of Business Administration.

Living in Prince Rupert for the past 22 years, have been very active in many Volunteer Associations.

Honored and privileged to have served 18 years as a school trustee serving the students of our community.  I do bring a lot of experience to the position but more importantly I bring a balanced perspective to the District. A past Union leader for many years, I understand the need for and respect Collective Agreements.  Balancing that with the needs of ensuring the most dollars available go to supporting students. My priorities are safe and optimum learning environment for all

students.

I started the move to have a controlled crosswalk at McBride and 9th Avenue.

A new building for the middle school is also very high on the list, one that I am sure we will accomplish in time.  My dedication and commitment is unwavering.

I ask for your support on November 19, 2011.
