I am voting for Pepper Evans, Jon Dauber, Michelle King and Cathy LeCompte for Board of Education on Nov. 5, and urge all Lawrence Township voters to do the same.

Running as a team in Column F, these four candidates have the experience, vision and energy to keep our schools moving forward. Their record as Board members shows that their focus is on providing our students with a high quality education that will prepare them for the future, while also respecting the needs of taxpayers. Their varied backgrounds and life experiences help ensure that we have a well-rounded Board, one that truly represents all the people of our township. 

Members of the Board of Education devote countless hours to the job, without any compensation except for the satisfaction that comes from making a positive difference to our community. 

I am proud to support the team in Column F. Their dedication to our students and their commitment to their service on the Board, is unequaled by any of the other candidates on the ballot.

I would like to offer a note of support to re-elect Evans, Dauber, King and LeCompte to the Lawrence School Board. As a parent who is involved, informed and invested in our schools, I believe our district is heading in the right direction. I am certain this has a lot to do with the perspectives and experience that our current Board maintains.

Pepper Evans has served our district as a Board member and parent for many years with both of her daughters graduating from Lawrence High School. Her knowledge of school boards, our district and our community is extensive and critical to our progress. 

The experience Jon Dauber has as an educational leader, both in Lawrence and West Windsor-Plainsboro Schools is undeniable. His presence on the Board, as a professional and as a parent of two elementary-age children in the district, clearly makes our district better. 

Michelle King’s work in higher education, particularly with teacher development lends itself significantly, to how we prepare students for life after high school as well as the recruitment and development of our own teachers. 

Cathy LeCompte has also served our schools for many years as a parent of two Lawrence High graduates. Her professional background in marketing is an extremely valuable piece to moving the district forward.

There are no personal agendas and no egos with this group, just a willingness to offer their skills to keep our schools moving forward. They are without a doubt, the School Board candidates to vote for on Tuesday, November 5th. I urge the Lawrence community to make an informed decision as they vote for our School Board. It is important not only for our children, but also for our community as a whole.

I would like to offer a note of support to re-elect Evans, Dauber, King and LeCompte to the Lawrence School Board.  As a Lawrence resident for over 26 years, I believe education in our district is heading in the right direction. This is in no small way due to the enthusiasm, perspectives and experience of these current Board members.

Pepper Evans has served our district as a Board member and parent for many years with both her daughters graduating from Lawrence High School.  Her knowledge of school boards, our district and our community is extensive and critical to their progress. Jon Dauber’s experience as an educational leader, both in Lawrence and West Windsor-Plainsboro Schools, is undeniable.  His participation on the Board, as a professional and as a parent of two elementary-age children in the district, clearly benefits our district.

Her professional background in marketing is an extremely valuable asset to moving our district’s educational efforts forward.

There are no personal agendas and no egos with this group, just a willingness to offer their skills and effort to drive education in the Lawrence schools forward.  They are without a doubt, the School Board candidates to vote for on Tuesday, November 5th. It is important not only for our children, but also for our Lawrence community as a whole.
