Bonnie

Brodner looks for all consequences

I have known Bonnie for many years and really respect her dedication and insightfulness to the schools and town community in general. Her kids and mine went to Bowman at the same time so we have known each other and volunteered together on a lot of school-related activities for the past 10 years. Also, we worked closely on the the successful override in 2007 and the 2012 debt exclusion to renovate Bridge and Bowman and replace Estabrook schools.

Bonnie is an effective leader, always prepared and has a good analytical approach to problems. She’s thoughtful and looks at the whole picture, asking probing questions to dig out the information she needs to make a decision. She takes the time to understand all sides of an issue, being certain there are no unintended consequences.

I am fully supportive of her re-election campaign to the Lexington School committee. It is more than a full-time job, with no pay, and decorated with a lot of headaches. Bonnie succeeds because she cares deeply about the people that make up the Lexington Public Schools. She always strives to answer the questions “what is best for Lexington students?” She’s an outspoken advocate for Lexington’s students, teachers and staff. She cares deeply about the people we hire, assuring that the needs of our students will be met and there will be a collegial working environment.

I admire her deeply for wanting to do it again for another three years. Please join me in voting for Bonnie on Monday March 3.
