Randi Baldwin running for Comox school trustee position

Randi Baldwin has announced her candidacy for school trustee for Comox Valley Schools (SD71), representing the town of Comox.

Randi and her husband have lived in the Comox Valley for 35 years. Together they raised one daughter presently teaching high school in the Northwest Territories. Pleased to be grandparents to a two-year-old granddaughter. Having supported and encouraged her daughter throughout her elementary and high school experience in the Valley, Randi is committed to public education.

She graduated from a psychiatric nursing program in the Lower Mainland, worked for a time as an educational assistant in the Bella Coola School District, and was also a harbour manager for three years.

After moving to the Comox Valley, Randi rained through the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, becoming a library technician, and subsequently getting hired by SD71 and working in Comox for 16 years as a library clerk.

She and her husband also hosted ESL students from abroad for seven wonderful years. You might say she has been mom to over 30 students ages 13 -15 years old!

She also has attended Comox Valley Toastmasters for almost two years, acquiring invaluable leadership, listening and communication skills.

Having seen her own daughter succeed through public education here in the Valley, Randi is strongly committed to helping other students gain their full potential so they are prepared for the future.

Randi believes in a caring, safe school environment for students and staff, advocating for a good working relationship in the school community and community at large. Her mantra is, ‘Let’s respect one another coming together for the success of our students.’

She desires to be part of a team that can make that happen.
