Kelly Whalen

Hello everyone, I apologize for my tardiness in sending this short bio in as I have been out of the country for the past 3 weeks on holidays. Nevertheless I'm excited to give you a short synopsis of who I am and why I would like to continue to represent Ward 4 Subdivision 3 over the next 4 years.

I believe and have continued to speak passionately in support of our democratic right to have publicly funded Catholic education in Peace River and Alberta.
