Nothing is more important to the future of BC than the education of our children.
Providing them with knowledge, tools and confidence to succeed is essential for their futures.
And yet in BC we have failed our students.
Most of BC’s 60 School Boards are run by trustees who are there for the employees, government bureaucrats and special interest groups. They push their agendas ahead of the needs of our students and their futures.
ParentsVoice BC is a school district elector organization dedicated to electing independent candidates for school trustee that will put the needs of students and families first. Parents are the true political party when it comes to their children’s education and upbringing.
By creating a provincial brand, voters will know that ParentsVoice BC candidates support their independent, families-first values.
ParentsVoice BC candidates will have the infrastructure and support to compete effectively. This includes training, fundraising, a webpage, list management, financial controls, platform development, social media and marketing.
Too many school boards are run for the benefit of the employees, government bureaucrats and special interest groups. As a result what happens in schools is kept hidden. In many school districts union and special interest group endorsements ensure their candidates are elected due to low turnout. It is very difficult for independent candidates to win going up against powerful union endorsements and volunteers, as well as progressive third party campaigns, training and polling data. This means the school districts are run for the benefit of those that work there and not for the students, parents or communities in which they reside.
Our vision is that the majority of every school board in British Columbia consists of school trustees that represent the families and communities in which they reside and not powerful special interest groups.
Our mission is to help independent, community first school trustees get elected by providing them with the tools, training and support they need.
Professional Campaign Management
Money helps us provide experienced campaign workers who know how to win.
Economies of Scale
The PVBC model enables economies of scale in campaign management. We can apply the branding, website, ads, videos and staff accross multiple candidates in muliple districts at a fraction of the cost if each went on their own.
Effective Targeted Marketing
Well designed and focused ad campaigns enable PVBC to reach our voters effeciently.
Voter Data Management
For the first time PVBC is bringing voter data management tools to independent school trustee elections. This helps with GOTV (Get Out The Vote) efforts as well as identifying friendly voters for future use.
Long Term Planning
Instead of focusing on just this election cycle, PVBC is building a platform to help us succeed in every election going forward. The brand, tools, data and experience developed this time are the foundation for future success.
Catching Up to Our Opponents
Currently unions and progressive organizations outspend us at least tenfold. If we are to succeed our side needs to buck up and support organizations like ParentsVoice BC to help level the playing field.
