Bronfeld’s Dedication, Hard Work, Compassion Make Her a Leader in District, Community

To the Editor:

I met Debbie Bronfeld in 2009, when my family moved to Princeton and our younger sons were in class together at Littlebrook Elementary School. At that time, Debbie worked at Dress for Success and then later at Mercer Street Friends Food Bank. Her career at nonprofit agencies dovetailed with her volunteer activities at Littlebrook PTO, where we worked on many events together.   

Debbie then focused on volunteering full-time. She continued being an active PTO member at PMS and PHS, but she wanted to make more of an impact in Princeton. Her dual concerns for food insecurity and equity for all students led her to be a founder and board member of Princeton Children’s Fund. Additionally, she was an early volunteer and is a current board member of Princeton Mobile Food Pantry, and also is a volunteer at Housing Initiatives of Princeton.  

Importantly, Debbie won her first of consecutive terms on the Princeton Public Schools (PPS) Board of Education in 2016. She currently chairs the Personnel and Equity committees, and is a member of the Operations and Student Achievement committees.

Debbie is committed to spending taxpayers’ dollars wisely, advocating for student achievement in the classroom and in extracurricular activities, and supporting teachers and staff so they can do their best possible jobs. Moreover, with six years of experience on the Board, Debbie has valuable institutional knowledge and an understanding of what programs and initiatives have been successful and where improvements can be made. She asks the difficult questions when discussing critical issues, and she votes with her conscience and intellect.

Please join me in voting for Debbie Bronfeld for re-election to the PPS Board. Her dedication, hard work, and compassion make her a leader in the school district and in our community.
