Windsor West MPP-elect Lisa Gretzky is thanking her fellow trustees at the Greater Essex County District School Board before the newly elected Ontario legislature sits for the first time on July 2.

“It’s bittersweet,” says Gretzky, attending her last meeting as a trustee on Tuesday night. “There’s many fantastic people here at the board and they’ll continue to do great work and I’m sure they’ll be in my office some day.”

“I said it on election night at the Caboto [Club] to some folks that were there,” says Gretzky, who gave special thanks to the union representatives attending the meeting in her goodbye address. “You played a key role in getting out to vote and that’s very important. I’ll never be able to repay that.”

Gretzky will formally resign her spot as a trustee when the official results of the provincial election are published, expected to be some time later this week.
