“Sue Lawton is everything you could want in a trustee: hard-working, dedicated, committed, empathetic and deeply kind. She is a tireless advocate not just for public education, but also as a strong, powerful voice for her schools, students, parents and communities.  Always willing to listen, to understand other perspectives, she is also a powerful voice for equity and inclusion. She has earned the respect of her colleagues and those she so ably serves. It is my honour to offer my endorsement.” Brian Woodland, @BrianInspires

“Sue Lawton is a passionate supporter of public education. She is knowledgeable from the school level to the board level, always in support of our students. She is respected by teachers, support staff, and administrators as an active listener who continues to learn to better support our communities. Her singular vision is to be an effective and responsible trustee. She works tirelessly and views her role as a full-time responsibility, whether visiting schools, responding to the community, attending board meetings, or serving the school board in various other capacities. Her trustee peers view her as a collaborative and respected trustee, who is knowledgeable, effective, and reliable.

We are so fortunate for the Peel District School Board to have Sue Lawton as a committed public servant, serving our students, schools and communities.”

"Ward 3 and 4 is very fortunate to have such a fearless advocate for excellence in education.   

Sue Lawton has a well established history of tackling tough educational issues with fierce determination and persuasive diplomacy.  
Sue has earned enduring respect from countless students, parents and educators in Peel."
G. McPhee, Retired, Teacher Librarian


"The work of a public school trustee is a complex one. The individual must be able to navigate the challenging and ever changing system of public education, work with various levels of government, and form close relationships with communities and parents.

Sue Lawton has proven to be that exceptional individual who has mastered all aspects of this position. She has chaired various committees in the Board, including Audit, Regional Programs and Trustee Review, among others. 

By far Trustee Lawton's greatest gift is her fierce advocacy for the students and schools she represents. 

Thank you Trustee Lawton for your laser focus on student wellbeing and student success. I fully endorse you to be re-elected as 

Peel District School Board Trustee for Mississauga Wards  3 & 4."
