We would like to enthusiastically endorse Kathy Tortorice for the District 97 School Board.
Kathy has the intellectual capacity, personal integrity and hard work ethic that will make her a superior school board member.
Kathy is a Doctor of Pharmacy and is nationally known for her leadership as a pharmaceutical expert with the Department of Veteran Affairs Strategic Health Care Group. She has extensive experience in the schools and community, putting in many volunteer hours as the sixth grade co-vice president at Lincoln School, and serving as a member of the Critical Issues process at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School.
In both her work and school involvement she has demonstrated excellent communication and listening skills, the energy and focus to see things through, sound judgment, and an ability to quickly absorb complex issues that school boards face and to mold solutions collaboratively. Her approach to the key issues for the district is outlined on her website at www.kathytortorice.com.
As a board member she will put children's academic needs first. Above all she has shown herself to be a consistently decent, down-to-earth, positive and inclusive person.
Punch 243 on April 5 for Kathy!
Alex and Elizabeth Lippitt
