Trina Ayling was first elected School Trustee for District No. 5 in 2008. Four terms later, she feels she still has unfinished business at the local school board.
Ayling notes that four Trustees have either retired or decided not to run this term, and SD5 needs continuity of leadership provided by those who have served through challenging times, to pass the baton of long experience. If elected, she says this will be her final, and most important, term as School Trustee.
“Our Board has a strong track record of professionalism and stability that our school community expects,” said Ayling. “No drama. Respect for and listening to our school staff, teachers and our parents. Guiding the delivery of the highest quality education for our kids. That’s a fundamental approach I hope to instill in those who will carry on this important role in the years ahead.”
Ayling points out that the School District No. 5 community has come through a global pandemic stronger and more focused than ever on the core purpose of education.
“Our goal is always to make sure we are giving our school kids, like my own two sons, the tools to develop their own abilities, to learn and grow, to be strong, happy and productive citizens within our community, or wherever their dreams may take them,” said Ayling. “I hope to continue to be part of that journey for another four years.”
