“Why am I running? As a graduate of Lyndhurst public schools, I want to give back to the school district, staff, and community that helped me get where I am today. As my own children begin to enter the school system, I want to see Lyndhurst Schools continue to improve and give every child the opportunity to meet his or her potential.
“As a product of this town, and as a parent, I have a vested interest in securing Lyndhurst’s future. Our policies can be smarter and our schools safer. Let’s work together to make Lyndhurst a beacon of success for our county and our state.”
