I will be running for the position of School Trustee in Port Coquitlam and need your vote on October 20.

As you know elections are expensive and this year they have implemented some new rules. I am only allowed to contribute $2,400 of my own money. All other money must be donated. The maximum a person is allowed to donate is $1,200 and corporate or union donations are not allowed.

I have been raised in Port Coquitlam and am a Terry Fox Secondary Graduate. I am proud to work, volunteer and raise my family in the vibrant community I grew up in. My hard work ethic, commitment and strong leadership skills will ensure that I am a voice for the parents and children.

I am committed to being part of the educational change. A voice for our children. My background includes:

• Fundraising Chair on PAC & DPAC Representative for 2 schools
• Executive Director for I Am Someone Ending Bullying Society
• Active and Engaged Member of the Tri -Cities Chamber of Commerce
• Involved in many charities: Poco Community Fdn, Cdn Cancer Foundation & more
• Terry Fox Graduate, attended schools in PoCo K – 12
• Mother of 2 involved in many sports & cultural activities

I will be launching my platform and website soon as I’m still looking for feedback as to what is important. In the meantime, I hope you will stop by on Thursday, September 6th to have a conversation about what is important to you in the role of school trustee and consider a donation. Any amount helps. $20.00 helps cover the cost of a lawn sign.

Other ways you can help?
1. Place a sign on your lawn
2. Volunteer a few hours
3. Make a donation
4. Visit my website www.andreahoworth.com

Light snacks and refreshments will be served and you are welcome to stop by with your childen. There is a small playground beside the building.

If you are unable to attend, I’m happy to have a conversaton with you during another time. If you still wish to make a donation, I can accept etransfer or would be happy stop by to pick up donation by cash or cheque. Please message me online or call/text 604.802.2440.

Thank you so much for your support! I sincerely appreciate it and I look forward to chatting with you and listening to you and welcome your thoughts! Please RSVP and invite your friends!!
