Dear Avoca Community,
Do you know who you are voting for in the upcoming School Board election? We do!
As former members of the Avoca Board of Education, we write this letter in strong support of the Avoca Coalition slate of candidates for this year’s April 6th election. This slate, comprised of Gil Gibori, Ami Das, Sarah Balassa, and Dan Seals, represents experienced leadership with a broad spectrum of public and District service experience. Collectively, these candidates bring a diversity of experience and perspective that is critical to the success of our School Board.
Effective service on the Board of Education demands a broad sense of our community’s aspirations, belief in fiscal responsibility, and an absolute dedication to collaboration. This group of committed volunteers will engage the community with deep respect for public discourse and transparency. Each issue facing the Board requires an appreciation for and synthesis of diverse viewpoints. The Board must ensure that all students are learning to their full potential and that our community remains a desirable location to raise families. Gil, Ami, Sarah, and Dan hold this mission to be paramount. These leaders have the skills and experience to help the District manage crisis, improve today’s outcomes, and innovate for the future.
As we emerge from the many disruptions caused by Covid, we need level-headed, responsible Board members who will govern effectively. Each of these four individuals bring valuable experience of public service and deep knowledge about our Avoca community. Gil, Ami, Sarah, and Dan are exactly what our District needs right now.
As former Avoca Board members, we enthusiastically support the Avoca Coalition, and ask that you do too.
