The upcoming Lebanon School Board Election is very important. Even though this is an off year election and there are no nationwide issues on the ballot, I think local elections are even more important.
What is at stake is the education of our Lebanon area youth. There have been many contentious issues surrounding the school district in the recent past and we need strong dedicated leaders on our school board.
I have known Tom Oliver for many years now on a professional basis. He is intelligent and hard working. He was instrumental in the development and design of our City Justice Center. His work as IT Director at the city was exemplary and he does an excellent job as Director of Engineering at Consumers Power.false
Tom has been active in the community for years and he was the task force chair of the Lebanon 2040 Vision process. He was critical in bringing community members together and keeping the process moving forward. I could not have asked for a better chair for this important project.
We need leadership that is not afraid to question the status quo and not afraid to stand up for common sense management of our local schools. Tom is that person.
Our children, parents, teachers and community deserve hard working, common sense people on our school board and he is just the kind of person we need. I hope you will cast your vote for Tom Oliver for Lebanon School board, Zone 2.false
