Trustee Michelle Guitard is a social worker, who is running for re-election this fall on the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board.
"My kids are still in the system. I still have one in elementary and one in high school now officially. I think the board still has a lot more it can do, and I'd like to be part of that change," she says.
Guitard would like to see more work done on wrap-around supports for children in need.
She's also focused on supports for staff, as well as students.
"If our staff aren't being taken care of, how can we expect them to help take care and support our students in their learning environment," she added.
Municipal elections will be held across the province next Monday, and advance polls are now open for electors ready to cast their electronic ballots.
