Bonnie

Brodner will keep district strong

Pam Hoffman

February 20, 2014

Most of us moved to Lexington because of the quality of the schools. By almost any measure our schools are among the best in the State and continue to attract families to our community. Critical decisions confront the School Committee, not the least of which is addressing Lexington’s burgeoning enrollments and investing in a major capital plan.

I want to vote for a School Committee member who is an experienced public servant, a person with a proven track record and a portfolio of accomplishments that address the totality of needs of all our students.

I want to vote for a candidate who understands municipal government, who is a Town Meeting member familiar with municipal budgeting, who knows that public process is messy, who recognizes that people don’t always agree and that the best decisions are derived from the back and forth that comes from opposing views.

I want to vote for a candidate who listens to all perspectives, who doesn’t rush to snap judgments, whose decisions are based on fact, not supposition, and one who respects the professional integrity of the staff.

I am voting to re-elect Bonnie Brodner and hope you will too - there is too much at stake to do otherwise. We need Bonnie’s experience, critical thinking and consensus building to ensure the continued excellence of Lexington’s schools.
