Maah and Krahn seek re-election as school trustees

School District 33: Incumbents Heather Maahs and Walt Krahn will be running again, and Paul McManus is a first-time candidate

Heather Maahs is letting her name stand again for school trustee in the upcoming election.

“I am looking forward to serving a third term on the Chilliwack Board of Education and continue to help improve and build education excellence for our students,” she said.

Implementation of the Special Education Review, which she heartily endorsed, is something she hopes will continue to be implemented.

“I’m encouraged we now have a fully functioning and transparent finance/budget committee with employee groups, parents and community members.”

Maahs served as CUPE liaison and sat in on recent negotiations.

“I have also enjoyed meeting many teachers and parents who have brought their concerns, opinions and ideas to me. I am constantly impressed by their dedication, their enthusiasm and the innovative approach they bring for the children of Chilliwack and I hope to be in a position to be able help advance their cause.”

Walt Krahn also announced he will be running again on his Facebook page.

“I have decided to seek a second term as a School Trustee,” Krahn said. “Our students, teachers, staff and community are so important, and my focus is on providing young people every opportunity to build success.

He asked that people share his message that: “We are all in this together!”

First-time candidate Paul McManus, commercial account manager at Chilliwack Ford has also decided to run for school trustee. He’s been active in the school community as a coach, fundraiser and chair of the Promontory elementary school association.
