Monroe School Board: Faulds has invested in schools

I am voting for Paul Faulds for Monroe School Board for four carefully-considered reasons:

He’s a fifth-generation Monroe family with two kids at Monroe High, his oldest daughter having already graduated. He is invested in, and knows, our community and schools.

Paul oversees multi-million dollar contracts and budgets as part of his work for Seattle Public Utilities. He understands complex contract development and budgeting, and knows how to be publicly accountable for his choices.

Paul served on the Monroe City Planning Commission, volunteered for Monroe School District Capital Facilities committee, and volunteered two full days a month as a parent helper in class, supporting children and teachers, when all three children were at Salem Woods Elementary. He walks the talk!

Last, Paul and our family have been neighbors for more than 20 years, while my own two children attended Monroe schools. You get to know long-term neighbors. Paul consistently has demonstrated a passion for education, a belief in the value of hard work, strong ties to our community, and personal integrity.

He is the kind of person I – and you – will be proud to have representing us!
