Dear Neighbors and Friends,
As the Burlington
Township School Board Member
Election approaches, it is
important to consider that our
district is one of largest in
Burlington County. The number
one challenge in our community is
to maintain our outstanding
programs that provide the best
possible services for our students,
despite diminishing fiscal
resources. To be responsible to
our community, we must also
ensure that the financial burden of
supporting our education system is
minimized. I strongly believe that
a school system defines a
community, and a strong
community provides the
foundation needed for the system.
