Annette has provided a high quality of leadership as a Board member and as Board President. As a retired education leader and former Board member, I feel strongly that public education governance needs elected officials who have experience with and a sound understanding of the entire education system. Annette is a tremendous asset to the County Board of Education and her community. Education should not be a playground for aspiring politicians who do not have a demonstrated focus on public education. It’s too important.
