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
“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.”
