"I was absolutely thrilled to learn that Joanne was running for a position as a trustee with the Waterloo Region District School Board! During my 5 years as principal at Huron Heights Secondary School, it was my good fortune to have Joanne as a regular, and completely engaged, member of our School Council. Joanne is incredibly perceptive, asks challenging and important questions, and is a strong advocate for what's best for the students in our schools. Joanne will make a positive impact as a trustee."
- Ed Doadt, retired Principal, Waterloo Region District School Board
"Joanne is dedicated to the helping the youth in our community. She is a positive leader that seeks out solutions in a very thoughtful and inclusive way. Joanne is also a tireless worker when it comes to ensuring the children in our community have the necessities to learn in schools and has demonstrated her commitment to projects like Nutrition for Learning at Doon Public School for over seven years."

"Joanne provided day care for our children and we have complete trust in her and her abilities. She is a confident pillar of our community, and many of our neighbours trust her to bring clarity and fairness to issues concerning our children."
- Karen and Terry, former daycare clients and current neighbours
"I met Joanne when our eldest children were in the same JK class. She consistently impresses me as someone who is an active participant in her children's education and in her community. More than that, though, Joanne is someone who always takes the time to listen, to investigate, and, ultimately, to use that information to advocate for what is best for students and their families."
