School Board elections are coming

Beautiful Plains School Division

It’s an election year for all municipalities in Manitoba.  Every four years we get to change or confirm the people who speak for us at the local level.  We elect mayors and reeves, we elect councillors, and we elect school board trustees.

You probably have a good idea what a mayor or a reeve does.  You probably know a councillor or two, and you know the things they deal with from day to day, and you may even have an idea how much those things can cost.  You pick your representatives to set priorities and watch over your taxes with care and caution, and to understand what you need and what you can afford.
