The purpose of this letter is to express my support for the re-election of Jean Lambert and Meg Wartman to the Board of Education and to urge voters to return these two bright, talented and hard-working representatives to the board to complete a host of unfinished business.
I have been able to take good measure of the intelligence, talent, work ethic and balance that each of these two candidates brings to the Elmbrook board's deliberations.
I also have had the opportunity to work with each of these candidates on matters that range from: establishing goals, weighing alternative strategies, matching goals with strategy, and linking goals and strategic alternatives with solid action plans.
Both of these individuals bring solid intellectual power coupled with the drive to do their homework, join in the discussions and then make the best possible decisions for the residents of the Elmbrook School District.
Meg Wartman knows precisely how the district works on every level, from policy through the learning process to the condition of the buildings and how they are maintained.
Jean Lambert brings an inquisitive mind, an ability to grasp details and a wonderful foundation of skills she has develop and honed in private enterprise.
Both of these candidates are well-rounded. They have a solid grasp of administration, curriculum, finance, facilities and policy.
Neither is a one-issue candidate. They are knowledgeable and solid decision-makers on issues as wide ranging as curriculum, finance, facilities, administrator and teacher evaluation, and all involved in keeping the Elmbrook School District a top-tier academic competitor in Southeast Wisconsin.
