It is a pleasure to provide a testimonial for Vincent Iantomasi as he runs for the position of Trustee at large for the Halton Catholic District School Board in the city of Burlington.
In my role as a principal, superintendent and director of education in a number of Catholic boards across the province of Ontario I had the opportunity to interact with Vince on numerous occasions.
Whether Vince was in the role of a parent, parishioner, committee member for the board or advocate he acted with integrity, credibility and professionalism.
He brings political experience, a solid work ethic, preparedness and energy to the task assigned and combines these qualities with a soft skill set that makes people feel at ease and comfortable in his presence.
Vince is aware of the challenges facing Catholic education locally and provincially and can work as a team member to assist the educators of the board to continue to deliver excellence in the classroom.
Vince has been a driving force behind the school boards facility renewal projects. He has worked tirelessly for over 12 years on Parent Council as Council Chair, Parish Rep and Community Rep.
He was instrumental in getting the turf field and new renovations at Assumption. His drive and passion for the Halton Catholic School Board will help bring it to the next level. Vince will work for you, parents and students of HCDSB. I fully endorse Vince to be the next Trustee.
