Trustee candidate Heather Maahs

School District 33: Maahs, Heather – school board candidate: Two-time trustee running for third term.

Heather Maahs.

Heather Maahs is allowing her name to stand as School Trustee. If elected this will be her third term.

“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.”

Heather is optimistic the Board will continue to oversee the implementation of the Special Education Review which she heartily endorsed.

“There is a way to go before I’m satisfied that we’ve done everything we can for the students who need specialized services. This is imperative.”

“I’m encouraged  we now have a fully functioning and transparent finance/budget committee with employee groups, parents and community members. Our school district budget is about one hundred and seventeen million dollars. How that money is spent must be completely accessible for public scrutiny.”

During this past term Heather served as Liaison to CUPE and most recently sat in on negotiations.

“CUPE members in our schools are the grease in the wheels of everything we do. They are a valuable group of very dedicated people who do not often receive the credit they deserve.”

“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.”
