Rob Paynter for Trustee (SD61)

$440 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 3 months
Re-elect a committed progressive advocate for public education. 

With your help I will be able to continue to work for a quality public education system capable of meeting the needs of every student.

Why Crowdfunding? Two reasons: first, crowdfunding is a fundamentally democratic way to raise donations depending as it does on the power of many making small donations; and second, election financing reforms have placed limits on candidate self-funding, meaning that my past practice of largely financing my campaign personally will not be effective.  I need your support to mount a successful campaign.

How will you contributions be used? Recognizing that the Greater Victoria School District (SD61) encompasses six municipalities and two First Nations, it isn't surprising that the costs of a basic campaign can add up quickly.  Contributions will be allocated among the following tasks:

     Brochure production:         $1,500

     Mail out postage:                   $   750

     Advertising:                              $   750

     Signs:                                           $1,000

    TOTAL                                         $4,000        

How to contribute?  There are several options available including:

·        This GoFundMe campaign

·        E-transfer to robpaynterforSD61Trustee@shaw.ca

·        Cash or Cheque


Election Finance Regulations
Please note Elections BC regulates contributions to municipal political campaigns. All donors must be a resident of BC, as well as either a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. The maximum personal donations is $1,200, and all donors of $100 or more will be identified on the Elections BC website.

My Goals

During the next 4 years, I will:

·        Strive for EQUITY across the district and within our school communities

·        Enhance TRANSPARENCY and ACCOUNTABILITY of district and Board decision making

·        Refine our STRATEGIC VISION for the district


·        Actively engage TEACHERS, STUDENTS, PARENTS and OTHER MEMBERS of our school communities

·        Develop partnerships with other levels of government and community organizations on such issues as LAND USE, CHILD CARE and other initiatives aimed at community well-being and improved opportunities for students

·        Support HEALTH and WELLNESS initiatives in our schools, including programs addressing mental health and addictions.
