Kanter’s Business Acumen, Compassion Make Her a Valuable Member of the BOE

To the Editor:

We proudly endorse Susan Kanter for a second term on the PPS Board of Education. Susan brings over 20 years of business experience to her work as a PPS Board member which allows her to work as a valued and collaborative team member, synthesizing input from a wide variety of constituents to best represent the interests of public school students and the Princeton community.

As an engaged volunteer in our schools (including seven years as co-president of the PHS PTO and five years as treasurer of PMS PTO) during the 18 years her three children attended PPS schools K-12, Susan has developed a deep understanding of the district’s inner workings allowing her to successfully navigate the School Board infrastructure. If re-elected, Susan can hit the ground running without needing time to “come up to speed.”

Susan has deep philanthropic roots in the Princeton community, serving on the boards of several nonprofits including Princeton Children’s Fund, The Jewish Center, and Treasurer of the 101: Fund. She understands the importance of giving back to the community. She is co-chair of the PPS Boards Operations Committee, which focuses on both the short-term and long-term financial health of our schools and the maintenance and improvement of our facilities and grounds. Susan has supported the PPS professional staff as they have upgraded procedures around building maintenance, developed and implemented plans to make our district more sustainable, and supported passage of a fiscally responsible referendum to do needed maintenance to our buildings.

Susan’s deep knowledge of the district also supports the work of the Long-Range Planning Subcommittee. This ad hoc committee is supporting the PPS staff in updating demographic data to ensure that PPS will be prepared for Princeton’s future growth.

Susan’s business acumen combined with her compassion for our students and the community at large make her a valuable member of the BOE and we urge you to vote Susan Kanter to serve a second term.
