Morrisville Borough School District School Director (4 YR Term) {_getChooseLabel(this.selections.length)}

A school board is a legislative body of citizens called school directors, who are elected locally by their fellow citizens and who serve as the governing body of each public school district. Each board consists of nine members who serve four-year terms of office. Unlike most other elected officials, school directors receive no compensation for their work. Principal duties include appointing and/or dismissing superintendents, principals and teachers; levying school taxes; purchasing land; locating new buildings; adopting textbooks and courses of study; fixing salaries of teachers and other appointees of the Board.

I am running for my 3rd term as a School Board Director in Morrisville Borough. Initially I had two boys in the district and wanted to be involved from all ends of their education. Although my children have since graduated within my first two terms, this is a great bi-partisan board to work with and we have many good things going on that I would like to see through to the end. Morrisville is my home town, my Alma Mater and my mom, who is now 94, raised 8 kids here. This is a great community with great families who deserve to be represented fairly.
As I near the end of my second term on this board I realize just how much we have been through together and the tough decisions we have had to make as elected officials. Some not so popular but necessary to do the job. As a parent of two boys who made their way through MHS and one who graduated from the Tech school, I have served on many committees and served as the Joint Board representative to both the Bucks County Intermediate Unit and the Bucks County Tech school. I have experienced the highs and lows of the job through contract negotiations, budget shortfalls and hiring Superintendents, Business Managers and Teachers. MHS is near and dear to my heart and I am so proud to represent our students and help them to get the recognition and respect they deserve!
