Letter to the Editor: Join the Nortons in supporting Jill Brady

Thursday, October 19, 2017

To the Editor:

Leaves are falling and yard signs are popping up. That means it is election season! A time when we, as a community, make choices about who will represent us and, through those choices, set our collective priorities. This year, it is an opportunity for the broader community to get to know someone I value as a leader and advocate for our kids and community - Jill Brady.

Jill and I served on the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation together, worked on bond and levy campaigns together, and, perhaps most important to any who know the Nortons, sat through many Shorewood and Shorecrest wrestling matches together. Jill always asks the tough questions, thinks practically and creatively, and finds compromise and solutions.

In the coming years, our District will face some exciting opportunities and some significant challenges. Four new schools will be built, and we will be grappling with new laws around education funding. Jill has the background and experience to ensure that we use tax-payer dollars appropriately while continuing to advocate for a fully-funded education system.

As a former School Board member, I know Jill has what it takes and is exactly what our District needs. Thus, it is no surprise that Jill is endorsed by community leaders throughout Shoreline and Lake Forest Park, including School Board President Debi Ehrlichman, Representative Ruth Kagi, LFP Mayor Jeff Johnson, Shoreline Councilmembers Doris McConnell and Will Hall, LFP Councilmembers Semra Riddle, John Resha, John Wright and Mark Phillips.

Even more importantly, Jill is endorsed by parents and educators throughout the District, all of whom, like myself, know that we will be stronger as a community with Jill on the School Board.

Join the Nortons in supporting Jill and continuing the legacy of excellence in our Shoreline Schools.

Maren Norton
