We write to congratulate Wayne Eastman, Jeffrey Bennett, and Madhu Pai on their victory in last night's school board election. Campaigns are about ideas and organization, and Wayne, Jeffrey, and Madhu did their work well. We all fought a good fight and then the voters had their say. This is what local democracy is all about. The campaign was heated, and sometimes overheated. We join with last night's winners in calling upon everyone to make every effort to work together for the benefit of all children in the district.
At the same time, we offer a deep and heartfelt thanks to all those who worked boldly and tirelessly on our behalf. You have inspired us with your commitment, integrity and intelligence.
Respectfully yours, Jennifer Payne-Parrish, Tia (Karen) Swanson, and Amy Higer
