Sadiq Valliani – Wards 11 & 13
An accomplished community leader experienced in business and board governance, Sadiq is the former Director of Operations for a Calgary-based property management company. He has worked at a big-four accounting firm, the House of Commons, and serves on several community boards.
Can Sadiq count on your support?
Our family has seen the results of the lack of transparency and accountability at CBE. My children's elementary school introduced discovery math when my older child was new at the school. The results were devastating. Within a short period of time, the provincial achievement test (PAT) scores plummeted. Parents began tutoring in droves, and many children left the school. Sadiq's platform of increased transparency, financial planning, and the reintroduction of academic performance indicators are critical to the future success of our students.
As a mother of two, I know that every parent wants their children to attend the best schools and to have the greatest educational opportunities available to them. It breaks my heart that our current leadership is not effectively serving communities, families, and most importantly, our children. I know that Sadiq’s experience in governance and business will serve the Calgary Board of Education well.
Minister Eggen's 'opeartional review' of the CBE confirms what parents have been saying for some time - the current leadership is failing our children. It's time to make a change.
