Public education needs a leader like Julie at this critical time. Why?  

Education is full of difficult issues. Julie has a track record of taking contentious issues, listening and finding a positive way forward. We need a leader who can help us through curriculum, COVID and funding. Julie has:

“Julie Kusiek has a passion for children and for the success of every child. She is a demonstrated community builder and collaborator. Julie would be a great Trustee and advocate for students and public education.”

Bev Esslinger

Former Trustee and Board Chair, Edmonton Public School Board

“Julie understands what it means to have a good education. She’s interested in how our education system in Edmonton can be the best in the country and the world by using the resources the city and province have to make that happen.”

Michael Phair

Former Chair, Board of Governors at University of Alberta

“Julie has been one of the most effective and active community leaders I’ve had the pleasure of working with during my time on Edmonton City Council. Her commitment to healthy, sustainable and safe communities for families and kids has been inspiring.

Julie is a real leader who understands community engagement and good governance. I am very pleased to be voting for her this fall as the next Edmonton Public School Board Trustee for Ward F.”

Michael Walters

Two-Term City Councillor, City of Edmonton

I am very happy to endorse Julie Kusiek as a candidate for the Edmonton Public School Board.

As a City Councillor I have known and worked with Julie for well over a decade. In that time I have been hugely impressed by her commitment to community. She has a remarkable ability to both  listen and give voice to the concerns of those around her.  And she gets great things done.

Without her energy and determination we would no longer have a Scona Pool let alone a commitment from Council to move forward with a new community multi purpose rec centre to replace it.

Her neighbourhood would not have the people and children first safety measures that have transformed the streets, roads and sidewalks in her community.

Julie has a remarkable ability to bring people together and lead them to real and positive change. I cannot think of a better person for our school board.”

This election cycle I am voting for Julie Kusiek for the School Board Trustee for EPSB Ward F. I first met Julie on the Board of Green Circle Preschool and later served with her on the board of Parkallen School Council. Julie is a passionate advocate for public education. I believe she will build upon her successful track record of community engagement and collaboration with the City of Edmonton to address the challenges facing EPSB. She is a safe pair of hands in these turbulent times.
