To the Editor:
We are writing to enthusiastically endorse Jean Durbin for Princeton’s Board of Education. We are going through a very difficult time in our state and nation, and many Princetonians are facing serious struggles to simply get by from day to day. More than ever, the School Board needs steady hands to guide our schools through these uncertain times.
Jean is deeply rooted in this town and knows our schools and our families well from being a PPS parent, a PTO president at Littlebrook, and a fixture for many years with Princeton Little League. Jeffrey has had the opportunity to work with Jean both at Princeton University and on the Executive Board of the Princeton Community Democratic Organization, witnessing first hand her ability to manage inclusively, build consensus, and work efficiently to get things done. Her background in policy making, strategic planning, and contract negotiation will help her add to the strengths of the current Board and its very capable leadership. Perhaps most importantly, she will bring to the job a deep commitment to the progressive, equitable values we share as a community. more
