The school board members matter to me. Every one of them matter, and more specifically, it matters if they can work together to get the job done.
I live in Fauquier County and teach at Taylor Middle School in the Center District. As an active parent, Susan Pauling has demonstrated she can work effectively and rationally with others. She has a diverse family unit herself, with children in multiple grade levels and educational needs, which has provided her firsthand, meaningful interaction and incidental experience in our school community. Susan has proven her ability to stay positive, levelheaded and focused on the goals within professional, parental and volunteer positions.
Susan’s campaign has reflected her core values. She is honest and hardworking. She owns her own opinions and is not one to fall in line without having the information she needs to make a good decision. If it is for the greater good, Susan can agree to disagree. She is fiscally responsible and is willing to go the extra mile to listen and understand issues brought to her attention.
When Susan contacted me to let me know she was seriously contemplating running for school board, I was elated and immediately began cheering her on. We need Susan on the board. We need a school board willing to work together and work towards the designated goals.
My district school board member is uncontested, but I still believe my point of view matters. The school board makes collective decisions for the entire county. I fully endorse Susan Pauling for Fauquier County School Board. Susan will put her best foot forward in supporting decisions that are best for our schools and the students we serve.
