I would like to express my gratitude to members of the community who supported my campaign for Trustee of the North Shore Schools Board of Education. Thank you for your trust. I will do my best to justify the confidence you have demonstrated.
In addition, I would like to acknowledge my opponents, Lara Gonzales and Robert Mazzella, for conducting their campaigns with the utmost integrity. May we strive for this standard in future elections.
The campaign experience has given me a deeper appreciation for our community. The budget meetings, “meet and greets”, gatherings of senior citizens and lunch with young mothers has enabled me to embrace the diversity of our community. Although opinions may have been varied, the unifying theme was one of pride in our schools.
My commitment is to use my experience and expertise along with my deep concern for the well being of our children to lift the district to higher levels of excellence. I am honored with this privilege.
