Cunningham's proven, effective leadership needed now
For the past 30-plus years I have had a keen interest in our School Board as a parent, board member and volunteer. I have come to appreciate leadership qualities that have led our Board through good times and tumultuous times.
We are currently in tumultuous times where leadership is critical. That is why Lori Cunningham should be re-elected to the School Board. Her leadership as chairman has only underscored how effective she’s been. The current pandemic requires a plan to ensure the safety of our students, teachers and staff while delivering a quality public education.
The downturn of our economy will mean less funds to educate those students. Budgets have always been an issue but going forward it will take job experience to navigate both. Throw in the search for a new Superintendent and you now have a three-legged stool.
Now is not the time for change for the sake of change. We need experience and proven leadership on the Board, which is what Lori Cunningham is well prepared to offer. She will only be satisfied when the challenges facing the Board have all been prudently dealt with and her fiduciary responsibilities have not only been met but have exceeded the oath she took to protect and oversee.
Vote to re-elect Lori Cunningham to School Board, District 2.
