OCDSB Trustee to seek the…
Trustee Jennifer McKenzie has announced her intention to seek the nomination for the Ottawa-Centre NDP candidacy. Trustee McKenzie will continue in her role as trustee and in her capacity as Chair of the Board.
I commend her for stepping up, takes guts. Although I have to question the timing given that there is a major Accommodation Review happening in her Zone right now. The folks who elected her really need that involved presence during this review. I work with some of her constituents who have children in one of the schools in the review, and they are very concerned that they will be losing an important voice at the Board table.
Will she be able to adequately represent her constituents’ interests while in what will be a tough nomination fight?
I guess we’ll see.
