I am voting for Peter Sherr for the Board of Education. Through his three children in the public school system, he knows and experiences the challenges confronting us directly. Not only does he ask the difficult questions, but also he diligently researches and analyzes alternative solutions to complex problems like FURB. Over the years I've had many conversations with him about his core values and asked him some hard questions. Peter's steadfast adherence to his core values enables him to "do the right thing" regardless of the impact to his popularity. His leadership is deserving of my support and vote.
