As a Vaughn resident, I urge my neighbors to vote for Jennifer Butler for the Peninsula School District Board of Directors.
Jennifer’s commitment to representing the whole community and every student in it makes her a standout in this election. In a district as geographically large as ours made up of a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds, it’s important to have a representative who understands the issues that differentiate the Key Peninsula from Gig Harbor. That’s Jennifer.
She’s met with voters from all over and listened to their concerns. Her own kids have attended both Minter Creek and Purdy Elementary, where she volunteered in the classroom. As co-chair of Stand up for Peninsula Schools, she devoted hundreds of volunteer hours to ensuring our community passed a much-needed bond that included the needs of Key Peninsula. As a result, Evergreen Elementary, which was built in the 1950s and was woefully outdated and undersized, was finally able to be rebuilt nearly 70 years later. Key Peninsula Middle School is also being remodeled and expanded.
With no agenda other than representing her neighbors and helping kids get the best education they can, Jennifer has earned my vote and she deserves yours too.
Lisa Anderson, Vaughn
