I am NOT you!

Given the kerfuffle in the US over Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell’s ad, and what with Halloween coming up and all, I want to state, categorically that:

I am not a witch, I am not “you” and some of what you’ve heard about me may be true!

Happily the voters out there want to talk about my past performance on the School Board and how to improve kids’ education, rather than to delve into my personal past – although I’m pleased to disclose I’ve never dabbled in the black Arts.

As the forums approach, I am busy doing my homework on issues of concern to stakeholders. While I realize I am NOT you, I do want to know what your ideas about teaching and learning in Canadian Rockies Public Schools. Contact me through email esmecomfort(at)gmail.com, or find me in the local phone book.

It’s all politics, all the time at the moment. I am as content as I can be – everywhere I go, thanks to those little pink signs in my car, folks want to talk about education, kids, community, democracy. My idea of heaven. I’ve been presented with some thought-provoking suggestions, corrected some misinformation, established some new relationships and learned a great deal.  It’s made me very hopeful for the future. I can’t wait to see if the voter turnout reflects the heightened awareness and interest in local democracies.

Hurray for elections!

About Esmé Comfort

My husband Jim and I moved to the Bow Valley in 1980, settling in Canmore in 1983. Both my children were born in Canmore and attended K -12 in Canadian Rockies Public Schools District (CRPS), French Immersion. For the past six years I served as vice-chair of the board. Alberta Government support to the CRPS Inspiring Hearts & Minds initiative created opportunities for provincial, national and international outreach. In the past I held positions on the Canmore Daycare Board, the preschool board, and various school councils/PACs; I served as president of the local chapter of Canadian Parents for French for five years and sat on the provincial board for two. I currently sit on the board of the Canmore Folk Music Festival, work full time at an events management firm and edit, copy-edit and proofread on contract. My husband and I ran a small main street business for 18 years: supply and install floor wall and window coverings.
