SB Q16: 20 Questions for Langley School Board candidates

 

Candy Ashdown (City) – Yes. Our current Board, formed Liaison Committees with both the Township and City councils. It has strengthened our relationships with the City and Township and given us a formal opportunity to discuss matters which are important to both Council and the Board.

Shelley Coburn (City) – Not that I have heard. It is not that they do not have a good working relationship, it is more that they do not have any working relationship. I may not know the answer to this question entirely until I get to the table but from my own experience and from what I have heard from others, some of who would likely know, no there is little to no working relationship. 

 Megan Dykeman (Township) – Yes. The current board committed early on to working with the municipalities, by increasing communication, to ensure that there is a mutual understanding of the issues.  Meetings are held monthly in a joint committee, where staff councillors and trustees attend. Communication outside of those meetings happens as needed. The current working relationship is excellent. Although no one should claim that the level of communication is perfect, in my view it is generally as timely and as often as is necessary to meet the needs of both the board and the municipalities.

Rod Ross (Township) – Yes. Our liaison meetings keep relationships intact and communication flows moving.
