In this Board of Education election, our vote counts. For the second time in two years, we have a real choice. Three candidates are vying for the two Republican seats.
Now is the time for all of us who care about excellence in education and the sanctity of neighborhood schools to make a difference. State Representative Stephen Walko and I are serving as honorary campaign co-chairs for one of the two endorsed Republican candidates, Peter D Bernstein. (The other endorsed, and also extremely talented, candidate is Brian Peldunas.)
Peter Bernstein is fair minded, thoughtful, balanced and achievement oriented. He has the intellectual integrity and civil demeanor necessary to accomplish the important work of the Board of Education. Two decades of professional legal and volunteer experience coupled with his demonstrated leadership skills and ability to be an independent thinker make him well qualified to serve.
Please join me and vote for Peter D. Bernstein on November 5.
Livvy R. Floren,
State Representative — 149th District
