THUNDER BAY, ON ---- September 13, 2010 ------ Lori Lukinuk has launched her trustee campaign for a 3rd term to represent the citizens of Thunder Bay and Area which now includes Armstrong and Collins. Lori was first elected in 2003 and again in 2006.
“It has been my privilege for the past seven years to serve the citizens of Thunder Bay and surrounding area as their Trustee with purpose and integrity,” said Lori Lukinuk. “I believe I have more to contribute to ensure that our children grow up in conditions that give them every possible opportunity to succeed in school and in life.”
As an active and involved trustee, Lori has served on many committees including: Vice-chair of the Special Education Advisory Committee, member of the Parent Involvement, Success Advisory, and Aboriginal Education Advisory Committees.
Lori believes that the committees that connect her to the parents, students, staff, and community agencies are most important because she hears what the community is thinking and can best represent them. She says, “I have been successful as a trustee because of support from and constant communication with many community members. I speak for them and for those who cannot speak for themselves.” Our public education system has the ability and power to transform lives, to address issues of poverty, health and well-being and strengthen communities,” says Lukinuk.
Since 2007, Lori has participated at the provincial level, serving in a variety of capacities with the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA). She served for 3 years as Vice-President for the Northern Region and was elected 1st Vice President of the Province in June 2010.
Lori maintains that advocating for public education requires continued vigilance and leadership which she will continue to do at the local, provincial and federal levels.
