Letter to the Editor: Join me in voting for Jill Brady

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

To the Editor:

I am endorsing Jill Brady for Shoreline School Board, Pos. #2.

I have known Jill for years. Her background is similar to mine, one that served me well as a 12-year board member, and now as School Board President.

Jill was active in many PTA roles at all levels; she was Shoreline Public Schools Foundation co-president; she participated in district committees and bond and levy campaigns. Jill has demonstrated a high level of commitment to the District.

Jill can relate to parental concerns. As a parent in the school system (son 2017 graduate, daughter at Shorecrest), she has had those same questions and concerns, navigating the “gauntlet” from elementary to middle to high school and beyond. Jill has the wisdom that comes with experience and historical perspective.

Adjusting to the new state budget, increasing enrollment, meeting state mandates, constructing new school buildings will be challenging in coming years. Jill’s UW business degree and comfort with big budgets, HR, and organizational management, have prepared her for difficult decisions.

Shoreline District serves both Shoreline and LFP. Like me, Jill is a homeowner, voter, and taxpayer in LFP. While not required (Pos. #2 includes most of LFP and a corner of Shoreline), I think it important to have LFP representation on the Board. I was that sole voice for the last 12 years. Jill is acquainted with the issues unique to the LFP citizenry.

I will miss the challenges and the people I have had the privilege of working with. But when it comes time to relinquish my chair, I am confident that the District will be in good hands with Jill. Her extensive background, deep roots, and broad understanding of Shoreline priorities have prepared her well for this important work.

Please join me in voting for Jill Brady for School Board, Pos. #2.

I heartily agree with Ms. Ehrlichman. Jill Brady has walked the walk for years, pouring time and effort into Shoreline School District causes and truly making a positive difference. She is smart, dedicated, and ready to give her all in this role. I am encouraging everyone I know to vote for Jill Brady.
