Andrea Steenbakkers, candidate for the Ottawa Catholic School Board Trustee for Zone 4- Barrhaven, Riverside South and Findlay Creek, is stepping down from her campaign for the October 27th Ottawa municipal election.
“The decision I am making is a personal one. In the last two weeks, we have had a significant and unexpected change at home. My kids need me here right now and I need to be here. I need to put my family first.”
Ms. Steenbakkers does not want the Ottawa Catholic Board to incur expenses in the case that a by-election is required if she is elected. Therefore, she encourages all OCSB supporters to take the time to understand the remaining two candidates’ platforms as we head into the last weeks leading to the election.
