Jess Deutsch Will Be Able to Speak the Language Of Schools and Uphold Mission With School Leaders

To the Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Jess Deutsch for the PPS Board of Education. We are very lucky this year to have so many qualified and enthusiastic candidates running for School Board, as Jess herself has said. I urge you to cast one of your votes for Jess; she is the only one with professional credentials in education; in this day and age it’s a breath of fresh air to have someone with expertise and experience run for office. She will be able to speak the language of the schools and uphold the mission with our school leaders.

Jess has deep roots in our community and, through her service on various nonprofit boards, has proven that she is an effective team player. I overlapped with Jess on the board of 101: and witnessed first-hand her creativity, willingness to work hard, and consensus building skills. Jess gets things done.

Jess’s kids went through our school system, and she knows firsthand its strengths and where it could be improved. Now, with her kids launched, she is in it for all PPS students.
