Foundations For Our Future is proud to announce the endorsement of the following candidates in the upcoming School Board election. We have provided a brief summary of our reasons for support, based on initial questionnaires, personal interviews and a background check of each candidate. Our mission is to promote and encourage the most qualified candidates for municipal elections without a focus on issues.
Our endorsements are just that: ours. Your vote is always yours to cast and yours to research for yourself. We simply want to provide as much information and an impartial review to aid in your own decision making. Above all, vote!
Of course all of our candidate choices support our teachers, students and making Lee’s Summit R-7 the best district possible to educate the future of our community. They all understand that the student population is changing and will continue to do so, and that ALL children need access to the best programs and methods to provide each child a path to success. The following candidates have outstanding qualifications and experience that we as a group felt made them our best choice.
Kim’s long association with our district provides that “inside” look as to the operation, curriculum and organizational structure needed on the board level.
Her former tenure as both a teacher and administrator give her a unique and valuable understanding of the role a teacher plays in our children’s daily interactions, as well as the challenges encountered there.
Kathy’s professional experience in strategic planning and implementation puts her in an excellent position for helping to ensure priorities are in alignment with the strategic plan.
Her experience in team and resource management to define and achieve outcomes will be necessary as the district faces the challenges associated with a more diverse student population.
Christine has served in a myriad of public positions, both on countless boards and commissions, bond initiatives and functioned as City Attorney for several municipalities. That legal background and understanding has been sorely missed at our board level. Her investment in Lee’s Summit as a business owner, commercial property owner as well as a homeowner and employer all contribute to her passion to keep
R-7 a top rated educational system.
She also realizes the importance the District carries for future and continued economic development.
