Mark was chosen in 2009 to serve for the remainder of my term when I stepped down to accept a contract position in Dubai. He was unanimously approved by the the then sitting School Board and has since proven our decision to be correct. Mark is meticulous in his preparation for meetings allowing him to make well informed decisions. His financial acumen means he understands the complexity of school board budgeting, a critical skill in these difficult financial times.
Most importantly, he is a calm voice of reason who has the ability to build consensus and seek out the compromises necessary for the Board to be an effective governing body. That, alone, is reason enough to elect him to a full term this April 5th.
Although I am not running for the District 202 School Board this year, I fully support Mark Metz and could not have asked for a better candidate.
