Please join me in voting for Jennifer Phillips for D65 School Board.  Jennifer has worked tirelessly on behalf of all Evanston students in promoting equity and excellence through her roles in Bessie Rhodes PTA, Math Matters and on the D65 Strategic Planning Committee.  She is extremely knowledgeable about the challenges facing our District — as well as the shining examples of success — and brings a wealth of experience, best practices and a fresh perspective to the table.  She is a great collaborator and a listener, and will take the diverse needs of all of our students into account, as well as the teacher perspective.  Jennifer understands the role and function of a Board, having served in that capacity before — something that will be critical in times of fiscal stress and difficult budget trade-offs.  She will help solve problems and will be tenacious at holding all, including herself, accountable to the District and community goals that are set.    Most importantly, Jennifer  will keep the student at the center of the conversation and will strive to keep the bar high, create an engaging learning environment for our kids,  and move D65 forward.

Early voting starts March 23rd and election day is April 7th.  Please exercise your right to vote and join me in supporting Jennifer Phillips!
