I encourage residents of District 2 to vote for Jeanne Swanton for Portland Board of Public Education on Nov. 6.

Jeanne has been an advocate for Portland students for almost a decade, working tirelessly to improve the everyday lives of students in the city. She has been a passionate advocate for students at Reiche Elementary School and has been a long-standing voice for increased funding for Portland’s school infrastructure.

In her dealings with the school board, she has always displayed a deep understanding of the issues and the implications of her recommendations. She brings a practicality that allows her to involve people of different opinions and backgrounds and gets them to focus on the important matters at hand to reach beneficial outcomes.

I strongly support her candidacy and would be proud to work with her on the school board.

Sarah Jordan Thompson

at-large member, Portland Board of Public Education
