“I have been very honoured to represent my city on the School Board. So much work has been accomplished, but there is so much more to be done,”
Cornwall has prospered under the leadership and service of McDonald as Trustee on the UCDSB. McDonald said .
“I am most proud of the rebuilding of Central Public and a major addition to Viscount Alexander School during my time. The future looks good too. We have to get moving on the building of a school for combined East Front and Gladstone, major upgrades at CCVS and $400,000.00 to go into Viscount Alexander to support all day every day kindergarten.”
McDonald has a number of other involvements. He has worked on various Children’s Treatment Center activities including being the vice chair of the Bike-a-thon Plus. He is currently on the Board of The S.D&G. United Way. A position he has held for the past four years. McDonald also has a provincial voice sitting on the Board of Directors of the Ontario Public School Boards Association (OPSBA). “Being involved at the provincial level has allowed me to bring the concerns of education in eastern Ontario to the broader Ontario seen.”
McDonald said, “On October 25th I am counting on the support of the citizens of Cornwall to allow me to work for them, supporting students and helping create a community that will succeed because our youth are prepared for the future.”
