Lily Harvey For Vancouver School Board platform Full Version vs. Shaw TV 2 minutes short version.

Ladies and Gentleman, my dear Voters of the City of Vancouver,

Here is my speech in English, later I will speak in Mandarin.

I am Lily Harvey, a previous two terms Board Member of the False Creek Community Centre from 2005 -2008. I arrived in Canada from China in 1995, since then I have operated a successful business, earned an MBA, became a Canadian citizen. I am proud of my long history of community volunteering, including being a part of the False Creek Community Centre and the community grassroots leadership in the Winter Olympic readiness efforts in 2008.

I am running as an independent for a position on the Vancouver School Board Trustee.
In the minute, I will tell you
1. Why I run for this election
2. My Pledge - I.E.E.E.
3. Why should you vote for me
4. My vision for a New VSB

The Reason I am running for the VSB is because:
1. I understand the public's great need and desire for their children and themselves to experience a better education, better registration process, especially in these difficult times.
2. I understand teachers' stress and frustrations. Their work responsibility is expanding while job security remain issue amongst teachers.
3. I understand the operational difficulties caused by underfunding and funding cuts.

I believe:
A safe and inspiring education environment at school is critical to shape each our children's confidence and character that will have an impact ON their career success and the future prosperity of our community. Teachers and parents are role models in the eyes of our children. Teachers' and parents' challenges and stress in career and in life must not be ignored.

Therefore, an inclusive, open, caring and transparent decision making is in the public's best interest. Many of you have seen one or two parties hold too much responsibility, power & control over people and their communities. VSB needs to be a balance of power to insure the public's interest is always Paramount.

I feel that my project management professional credentials , my professional background and my familiarity with the immigrant communities will allow me to make a significant contribution to the VSB. Therefore, I decided to run for this election to serve you and our community.

My Pledge,my mantra and blessings to you: I.E.E.E.

Why should you vote for me
1. I will inspire the citizens of the community to believe in the education sector and encourage your speaking out your ideas and unleash your community leadership with I.E.E.E. pledge
2. My project management skills will be used to help solve problems such as:.
- Educational underfunding, declining expert teachers, earthquake readiness
- Bullying on the playgrounds, crimes on the streets
- Mental and disabilities
I will listen to your ideas and concerns, be your voice, your advocator for - Inclusive, open, transparent decision making process in our VSB

My Vision for A New VSB
• Out of the box solutions using PM approach
• VSB leadership to speed up problem solving
• Better planning and better use of resources
• Inclusive,open,transparent decision making

I am looking forward to WORKING WITH YOU AND FOR YOU!

TOGETHER LET'S Practise: Inspire! Encourage! Empower! Enable!
