It has been my great honor and pleasure to represent you on the Northshore School Board for the last 2 years, as I was elected in 2017 by way of a special election to fill an early vacated seat on the Board. My experience has been altogether challenging, surprising, enlightening, and immensely rewarding and fulfilling. Therefore, I am again asking for your vote so that I can continue this great work for a full 4-year term.
Seeing the inner workings of how an organization of over 22,000 students, 33 schools, 2,100 employees, with an annual operating budget of over $245 million and additional levy and capital bonds of over $580 million is truly impressive. It is all extremely complicated, but it all comes together through the efforts of many people offering their time, commitment, and passion. Without an outstanding commitment from our administrators, teachers, support staff, students, and especially from our community and parent volunteers and advocates, we could not be as successful as we have been.
Thank you for entrusting me and the rest of the Board with providing oversight, leadership, and guidance over this amazing community organization. It will be my pleasure to continue to represent you.
