Giuseppe Peritore: In addition to speaking to parents throughout Oakville, I’ve visited every Catholic School in Oakville and talked to Principals and/or Vice Principals about their school strengths and challenges. I’ve also visited most Oakville Parishes and spoken to their Pastors to get their perspectives on Catholic education in Oakville.
Oakville.com: What do voters need to know that will compel them to vote for YOU?
Giuseppe Peritore: I’m a lifelong Oakville resident. My wife and I have over 20 years experience as Catholic students in Oakville. With three young children, we will have a child attending Catholic schools in Oakville for at least the next 14 years. I have been an active member of St. James parish all my life. I’ve been an active parent and volunteer at Mother Teresa school for over 5 years. I am willing to hear the concerns of parents and be the voice of their children at the HCDSB. I believe a school board that works together, grows together. I have no personal agenda.
