To the Editor: As a Pleasantdale School District 107 community member for over 30 years as well as an individual who has been passionately involved in our school district for almost 20 years, I am writing in support of Mark Mirabile and Mike Hawbaker.
I believe both of these individuals will bring their professional business experience, their passion for education and their informed decision-making to the Board of Education while maintaining a perspective that advances educational opportunities for all students. Engaging in constructive dialogue, each brings independent and diverse viewpoints, which will openly and morally be presented, discussed and debated.
Their connection within the community, their understanding of fiscal advantages as well as constraints, and their tireless effort to work for and on behalf children, speak to the commitment, character and integrity of Mark and Mike to serve our community responsibly.
