Election Opinion: Andrea Swenson Has an Unwavering Commitment to Our Students and Our Community

Piedmont is fortunate to have citizens willing – even eager – to serve on our City Council and School Board. It’s a partnership, really, because we support them with taxes, involvement, and our vote. Together, we’ve accomplished a lot, producing schools that excel and kids who thrive.

The recent CAASPP state-wide test results provide one measure of the success of our schools – #1 in the state in Mathematics and #3 in the state in English Language Arts. Beyond test scores, however, our schools excel in providing every student with the 21st century learning skills needed for colleges and careers.

We rely on our school board members to set goals and make decisions that will best serve our kids. Over the past four years, Andrea Swenson has proven that she is the right person for the job. She has a deep understanding of our schools gained from her past experience on the Board and her many years of involvement with various school support groups, as well as the leadership skills necessary to tackle the tough issues that come before the Board.

Most importantly, Andrea has an unwavering commitment to our students and our community. Please join me in voting to re-elect Andrea Swenson.

Cathie Geddeis, Piedmont Resident
