Endorsing Re-election of Kendal For Another Term on the BOE

To the Editor:

As a Princeton resident for over 20 years, I have been involved at various times in the successes and challenges of the Princeton Public Schools as a community volunteer and advocate.
I write in strong support of Dafna Kendal’s candidacy for re-election to the Board of Education (BOE). Dafna has skillfully steered the BOE through one of its most critical periods. Among the many milestones that have been accomplished during her tenure, I’d like to highlight the favorable and frictionless union contract negotiations, a widely supported facilities referendum, and a smooth transition in key administration roles.

In addition, she has been able to build and keep open communication channels with the diverse sectors of the Princeton community. Dafna makes herself accessible and is eager to get community input and to promptly respond and seek answers to the many unprecedented challenges faced by our children and their families during these difficult years.

Fortunately, Dafna is willing to continue this arduous task, building on the experience she has accumulated in her successful six-year track record. On November 8, I will join other Princeton residents grateful for the opportunity to endorse the re-election of Dafna Kendal for another term on the Board of Education.
