What most needs doing?

Our mental concentration can be like a flashlight beam. If you don’t focus your efforts and energies on the big issues that matter most, you can get derailed by administrivia and smaller, less-pressing matters and you will never find your way out of the cave.

It has been a week since the election but life has still been continuing at a break-kneck speed. Media interviews, clean-up and much more! Tuesday-Thursday our team was out all over the city taking down billboards and lawnsigns. If you see a stray lawn sign, please take it down and recycle it. We have tried to salvage as many of them as possible for future use. Friday and Monday had trustee training and a great opportunity to meet the new board, administration team, and start brainstorming on the course we will chart over the next year. I look forward to working with our board colleagues and I am excited to start building relationships with the newly elected and re-elected councillors. There has been much discussion about cooperation this past election, so let’s get brainstorming.

I am continuing to work at the EFCL and due to the project-based nature of my work (and the flexibility of my employer) I will be in the EFCL Office on most Monday, Wednesday, Fridays and can be reached at michael.janz@efcl.org or by phone 780-737-2913. Also on Tuesday/Thursday I will be roaming or in my office in the blue building and can be reached at michael.janz@epsb.ca

I look forward to the opportunity to serve and look forward to being officially sworn-in and empowered on November 2nd at our first organizational board meeting. The meeting will be held at 730PM at McCauley Chambers and is open to the public.

Please continue to be in touch. I will be trying to make as many community league meetings, school council meetings, and other events as possible so please add me to your mailing list or make sure to send me your invitations. I will do my best to attend, get informed, and allow your feedback to inform our board.
