Three of the new Thompson School Board of Education Members were sworn in on December 3rd at a regularly scheduled Board meeting. (The fourth new Board Member took the oath on November 26th after some confusion as to the time and place of the swearing in.)
New officers were elected/appointed during the first part of the meeting. Bob Kerrigan was elected new board President, Bryce Carlson was elected Vice President and Donna Rice as elected board Secretary, Denise Montague was elected board Treasurer.
Carlson commented; “I think we can accomplish a lot as a district. I would love to see more transparency as a district and more choice for parents and families and more engagement, along with higher math and literacy scores.
“We need to ensure that one of our top priorities is listening to our communities.” Bob Kerrigan said. He confirmed that all of the Board members agree that their focus should be on student achievement. “We will work to uphold the needs of teachers and staff but, in all things, we will do our best to ensure that education dollars are devoted to the classroom and that every transaction is made in the interest of the children.”
Now is the time to be heard, to take a stand and make a difference for our future, our families, and our nation.
The Republican Party of Larimer County needs dedicated volunteers to help us get our message out, and let the people know that the GOP stands with them, honors their values and understands their concerns.
Your hard work will be the difference on Election Day – we cannot win without the commitment and efforts of people like you.
