Eileen Jay for School Committee

by Audra Myerberg

Please join me in voting for Eileen Jay for School Committee on Monday, March 7. I have had the honor of knowing Eileen since 2014 when we worked together on Bill Hurley’s school committee campaign. I was impressed by her then and remain so today.

Eileen’s qualifications for the position of school committee member are obvious but it is her attention to detail, calm demeanor, willingness to listen to all sides and unwavering commitment to our student’s mental health that has me coming back to support her re-election.

Eileen cares very deeply for the school district her own children attended and while this has been an incredibly difficult time for our community she has made every school committee decision based on the well-being of both our educators and our students. A balancing act that has been challenging but rewarding as we now celebrate being back in person at our 11 schools.

Now is the time for a steady hand, a school committee member with history and a long-term commitment to LPS, its educators and students. While change may be tempting, it is the long view we need to keep in our sight as we move through the pandemic with greater mental health and academic resources for our students.

I am confident that Eileen Jay will help lead us into the next chapter with our students as her No. 1 priority.
