Campaign Fund of Cook for School Board
WHY AM I RUNNING FOR SCHOOL BOARD?
I am fiercely passionate about the critical importance of public education to any community’s future. I am running to present a bold vision of Rochester’s future as a center of excellence in public education. While Rochester is in the midst of an exciting growth phase, the next several years present huge opportunities to develop our public school system. Rochester already has much to be proud of. Rochester is regularly ranked among the best cities to live, and home to the finest center of healing in the world. Let’s add Rochester Public Schools to the list of things Rochester is best at.
I became a candidate for school board to invite this community to share my vision of Rochester as a model of excellence in public education. I want to push the boundaries on curriculum programming, grading practices, infrastructure resources, community partnerships, and ultimately on educational outcomes. Let’s feel an overwhelming sense of urgency about making sure each and every student is equipped with the opportunities to develop into the best version of themselves. We may remain Minnesota-humble about it, but the results will speak for themselves.
That is my vision. If you can glimpse it too, then I sincerely ask for your vote in November.
