School board elections are coming up on Oct. 21. Voters will have an opportunity to decide who will lead our local school system for the next four years. Please think about who you would like to elect to your school board. And perhaps think about running for school board yourself.
As a school trustee, you are part of the school board that decides how education is delivered locally. The school board’s policies and the decisions it makes have a big impact. Your school board oversees millions of tax dollars, employs hundreds of teachers, support staff and local contractors and plays a key role in the education of our community’s school-aged children.
Make sure your school board represents the diverse views and interests of your community. Having a broad spectrum of perspectives represented on your local school board will make our schools stronger.
And a strong, well-run school system is essential to building a strong and vital community.
On behalf of your local school board, I encourage citizens who are interested in public education to think about running to become a school trustee.
Your service on school board — whether you have children in school or not — will make a difference for our community’s children and for our community.
The date to fi le nomination papers is Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to noon.
