Mary for Re-Election 2019
It has been an honor to serve you and the children of St. Paul on the St. Paul School Board for the past three change-filled years. Our schools are doing amazing work and are having tremendous outcomes despite the challenges of a large urban community.
I have advocated tirelessly for high quality early childhood education for 3 and 4-year olds. I have made significant inroads and there is still much work to be done. I have also devoted my energy to stabilizing the structure of the schools through the referendum and responsible facilities management. My personal priority has been to visit schools, meet with parents, celebrate graduations, cultural events, athletic achievements and artistic endeavors. My relationships in the community have led to increased involvement by a variety of groups and individuals who devote time and resources to support students, families and teachers. The work of culture change I promised four years ago is well underway.
I love this city. I love our children. I want to continue my leadership on the Board of Education. I ask for your support in your vote and in your continued interest in sharing ideas, issues and your enthusiasm for promoting St. Paul’s amazing schools.
Your support means the world to me.
