But did you know that there’s an elected board in Calgary that has had acclaimed races and oversees more than $1.2 billion dollars of spending? And that’s just the Calgary Board of Education. (To compare, the City of Calgary’s 2012 consolidated operating budget is $2.7 Billion – and the CBE’s budget is half of this.)
You should be worried about the trustee elections in 2013.
The boards (there are two major ones in Calgary — the Calgary Catholic School District and the Calgary Board of Education) handle a lot of money and oversee one of the largest services in Alberta.
