The Naperville Patch asked us why we are running? It's a good question:
Our children are the future. It is our collective responsibility to protect, educate and nurture all of them. As an educator, a parent, a social worker, a homeowner, and citizen, I value being a part of an educated caring community. With the current fiscal challenges, and the ever-changing landscape of education, I believe my experience, knowledge and willingness to listen, learn, and communicate honestly, will be more valuable than ever on the board.
Thank you to all who have posted and reposted, come out to forums, put signs up. You help inform folks. You are the community.
Thought Pete the cat might get some attention! :)
