The second word I chose to exemplify my campaign is INTEGRITY. Integrity is an important ideal for me both personally and professionally. As an attorney I have an obligation in my professional life to act with integrity to my clients, adversaries and the court. Personally, I always strive to act with honesty and to do what I believe is right, even if it is not the popular choice. As a member of the Board of Education, I will carefully consider every agenda item and vote that I am asked to take, to determine what I believe is the best decision for the students of Verona, as they will be my primary concern.
Another aspect of integrity is trustworthiness. I believe in seeing my obligations through. If I pledge to do something, I will do it. As a current Board member of Verona CHILD, I have followed through on my responsibilities and obligations. I was a New Jersey Resource Parent charged with caring for the most vulnerable members of our community. I fulfilled all my obligations to the agency, the parents, and most importantly, the children that were entrusted to my care.
A third aspect of integrity is hard work. Being a member of the Board of Education is not an easy job. You are tasked with making decisions that impact our youngest residents and their families, as well as the community. It is important to be prepared and put the work in before you sit at the public meeting and take the vote. I am adept at juggling multiple priorities and changing needs. In my role as an education attorney, I must stay abreast of developments in this area of the law. This expertise will be useful when considering decisions that will be made by the Board and their potential impacts down the road.
If I am elected as a member of the Board of Education, I will work hard for the children and families of Verona. I will carefully consider all votes and decisions that are in front of me and vote my conscious. I hope to have your vote on November 8th
