My Team TSU "A+" List Candidates Report Card

I 've found the following candidates work together best. Please vote for them and myself on May 11th. You will get a strong, member focused, action based, TSU executive team:

1st Vice President: Gerard Ardanaz! Gerard earns top marks for his thoughtful consideration and tireless dedication to serving our members. You can disagree with him and know you will get a well reasoned response. He's always open to suggestions, and focused upon moving forward effectively on TSU issues. He doesn't drift, get lost, or off topic. Gerard knows what he's talking about. He's not just talking to be heard. You won't find him glad handing you or just campaigning for re-election. He's way above that. Never missing in action, Gerard is always at TSU, the schools, or the CEC working hard for you.

2nd VP: Teresa Placha! Teresa is a real go getter. Tightly focused on your interests and needs, she works at a problem until she gets to the bottom of it for you. Polite but direct, she won't hesitate to take the board to task. With sober thought and consideration, her words and plans are always carefully executed with your best interests in mind. Teresa doesn't play the "poor me" victim game. She's never been a bad loser. She doesn't have to tell you she has integrity, she lives it. Very positive, Teresa moves TSU forward constructively and effectively. With Teresa, you always come first. It's all about you, not her.

3rd VP: Myself of course. I know, it is my site, but please read over my postings and resume, then decide for yourself. For me, serving you strongly and effectively is what TSU is all about. I always work very hard at it for you!

Secretary: Gillian Vivona! Her minutes and notes are always very clear and concise. She works very hard and constructively to get them right. Gillian's highly respected work on SSSAC and the TSU School binders is tireless and unrelenting. She never speaks ill of anyone. Gillian sticks to the moral high ground. She isn't sanctimonious nor prone to bullying, trickery, poison pen email letters, or small minded game play. She'd never negatively undermine the greater good of TSU just to win, while making ridiculous claims to the contrary. Without doubt, Gillian is always clear focused on moving forward constructively, effectively and efficiently to take care of your needs.

Top 3 Councillor Choices; [Vote for 3]:

Dave Szollosy! Dave is a passionate, tireless believer in our greater common good. His excellent, clear and focused knowledge of our legislation, by-laws and procedures will always govern his decision making on any and all TSU matters. Dave is our point person at TYRLC. He isn't a follower, a misinformed stooge or a light weight TSU wannabe. Dave is a strong social justice advocate. You can agree or disagree with him on different issues. Regardless, you can tell always tell Dave is just a plain nice guy. He knows his stuff. He will listen thoughtfully. He is on TSU executive to serve you.

Bianka Hudek! Like all my A+ candidates, Bianka is an independent thinker. She keeps the best interests of TSU in mind. She is not here for herself, or any particular group. Bianka is a well respected TSU PAC leader, at OECTA provincial, and in the field. Her strong, solid focus on woman's issues is very self confident and assured. She is always positive and constructive. Bianka doesn't have to try to prove herself as a woman leader. You can be confident she will be your strong TSU advocate, whoever you might be.

Darrin Scibberas! This is Darrin's first run at TSU office. He's proven himself as an excellent teacher rep and SSSAC chair. Darrin is in OECTA Provincial's Leadership program. He is the first wave of TSU renewal, as more teachers prepare to lead us through the years ahead. Look for more fresh talent stepping forward soon, but for now vote for Darrin. He's ready for the job with your go ahead.

Kindly note the views expressed above are my own.
