We are writing this letter in support of Blanca Lopez for re-election to the Board of Education and asking our fellow parents, residents and friends to support her on May 15. We believe Blanca Lopez is a great asset to our BOE and has made significant contributions to our school district. Our school district is facing some challenging times marked by a five-year tax cap levy, insufficient state aid, and steadily rising expenses. We need a strong leader with student-centered priorities who can ensure that our schools continue to move forward. That person is Blanca Lopez.
Blanca works for a non-profit organization that preserves and promotes housing opportunities for individuals and families in Port Chester. The people that she helps every day are a constant reminder that high taxes are a real burden for many Port Chester residents. She also has a child in our school system, and wants all of our students to have the best education possible. Blanca has used her many ties within the community to encourage partnerships with community organizations that fund vital programs for our students at no cost to the taxpayer.
Blanca is also an active member of the Park Avenue PTO, serving on various committees and supporting many of the schools events and activities. She helped to establish a PTA/PTO Council that brings the PTA and PTO presidents of all six schools together on a monthly basis. Blanca is an active volunteer and a strong advocate for our children; she truly understands and recognizes the needs of our district.
In sum, Blanca Lopez brings strong leadership, commitment and enthusiasm to the board of education. She will continue to ensure that the school motto of "success for every student" is a reality.
Please join us in supporting Blanca Lopez on May 15th.
