opinion: Deb Mexicotte knows what is best for the future of children within school district
I am writing to share my strong belief that re-electing Deb Mexicotte to the Ann Arbor School Board is the best way forward for our children and our city.
Deb’s experience, compassion, and leadership qualities are what we need most in these difficult financial times. Education is not a business. Our children are not commodities. Yes, the budget is a problem, but AAPS is not a business. Financial profit and educational profit are not the same thing and Deb understands this. Her opponent does not. A knee-jerk reaction for change when the going gets tough is not the way forward. Ann Arbor Schools need a proven leader, mediator, negotiator — a champion. Someone who has a track record for being involved and caring about the education of our children. Deb is this person. Her opponent is not. I urge you to endorse Deb Mexicotte and encourage your readers to re-elect Deb Mexicotte to the Ann Arbor School Board.
