Former Council Members Support McDonald For Re-election to BOE

To the Editor:

We write in enthusiastic support of Brian McDonald as he seeks re-election to the Board of Education. 

As former members of the Princeton Council, we saw firsthand Brian’s deep commitment to our community. For seven years, he served on the Citizens Finance Advisory Committee, or CFAC, working to ensure responsible oversight of taxpayer dollars, efficient spending, and flat or low increases in taxes for many years. 

For the last three years, Brian has been a valued member of the Princeton Public Schools Board of Education. He has brought his skills in finance, facilities, and planning to a number of successful Board initiatives. For example, he helped to hire a talented new director of plant and operations, successfully advocated for increased preventive and ongoing maintenance so that our physical plant and equipment are properly stewarded, and worked closely with staff to provide a healthy and safe environment, with heightened standards and precautions during the pandemic. Finally, he brings considerable skill and expertise to the school budget.

We are fortunate to have Brian working on behalf of Princeton families and taxpayers to maintain our excellent schools and ensure that all students benefit and thrive. We hope you will join us in voting to give Brian a second term on the Board so that he can continue this important work.
