Poulas Touts Fiscal Responsibility
Letter discusses candidate's qualities.
Patch received the following letter from Board of Education candidate Stacey Poulas.
My name is Stacey Poulas, and I am running for a seat on the Jefferson Board of Education. I have lived in Lake Hopatcong since 2002 with my husband; our oldest daughter attends Briggs School. I look forward to contributing to our community and the future of our children.
I graduated from Montclair State University in 1999 and immediately began my teaching career in Kinnelon. Having taught kindergarten for 11 years, I see the daily rewards that occur in a classroom, and I know the importance of good teaching. As both a teacher and a parent of two young children, I feel that it is our responsibility to stand up for our children and support their success! My goal is to achieve educational excellence while being financially conservative.
I am running for the Board of Education to make a difference. We need to acknowledge the challenges of today and the hopes of the future to make the best possible decisions. We need to learn and be able to be proud of our past and focus on our future. We are a community and we need to support the success of our students. There needs to be more communication between the Board and the public. There needs to be a partnership between the Board and the public, especially during these difficult economic times. Open, honest communication is important.
I am asking for your vote so that I can be a voice for everyone in our community—together we need to support the success of our school system. I am willing to make that commitment—for my children, your children and for the taxpayers in Jefferson Township.
Please vote on Wednesday, April 27th, 2011; together we can be proud of our past and focused on our future! Please visit my web page for more information: www.poulas4boe.com.
