I have known Carolyn Chase since she was the leader of our PTSO at River Ridge Elementary several years ago. She has spent more than 10 years acting both as a PTSO/PTA president at two of our schools (Riverside Middle and River Ridge Elementary), and she has also been very active in the schools as a parent. She has a child in middle school as well as high school.
Carolyn has the ability to donate 100 percent of her time during school hours to meet with principals, students, teachers and administration. She is aware of the budget cuts that have affected our student-teacher ratios and will fight to maintain and improve them.
Both candidates for this position are good citizens of our community, but when comparing the two, Carolyn has already demonstrated where her heart and time lies.
Carolyn is honorable and ready to continue the success of our schools and look for ways to improve them. A vote for Carolyn is a vote for your children.
