This November, voters across the country will face a critical decision in electing our next President. At the same time, Hoboken voters should also remember to vote in our important municipal school board elections. I am proud to endorse the Forward Together ticket (1-2-4) of Jen Evans, Sheillah Dallara, and Irene Sobolov for school board on Election Day.
Jen, Sheillah and Irene have been working hand in hand with Superintendent Christine Johnson on a number of improvements for our school system since her appointment last year. In particular, I’ve been impressed with the Project Lead the Way curriculum introduced in the public schools, which has given our children new tools to succeed in subjects such as computer science, engineering, and biomedical science.
Additionally, Jen, Sheillah, and Irene have played a key role in enhancing after-school programs offered for children, and the results have been overwhelmingly positive for a discounted price. With the new Passport to Learn programming, children now have the option to participate in 17 new after-school activities, including Spanish, chess, debate and dance classes, among others.
And most important, as mothers of children within or who have graduated from the Hoboken school systems, Jen, Sheillah, and Irene are deeply invested in our Hoboken Public School District. They have committed countless hours of their time on volunteer boards, fundraising for special-needs programs, and chairing parent-teacher organizations to improve our schools for all children.
On Election Day, I hope you will join me in supporting the Forward Together (1-2-4) ticket of Jen Evans, Sheillah Dallara, and Irene Sobolov, so our schools can keep moving in the right direction.
Mayor of Hoboken
