A true champion - Eugene Register Guard 5/13/21

Judy Newman deserves your vote for the Eugene 4J School Board. Her background makes her uniquely qualified to understand the challenges students face. She is an excellent listener and communicator and will put students and equity front and center in all decisions.

Judy understands the role of the school board. She knows the first priority is to listen to multiple voices, including those not traditionally heard, and then to develop policies and a budget that ensures all students have the opportunity to succeed. She has run a complex, multi-million-dollar education nonprofit and brings invaluable leadership and budget management skills to those decisions.

Another significant role of a board is the hiring of a superintendent. The district will be undertaking that process in the coming year. We need Judy’s calm, balanced voice in that decision.

Judy has built key relationships necessary to be an effective advocate for Eugene students. She is endorsed by all Lane County legislators and dozens of community leaders and educators.

I served on the Eugene School Board for 18 years, and I know what is needed in a good school board member. Join me in voting for Judy Newman, a true champion for our children.

Beth Gerot, Eugene
