I enthusiastically endorse Lynda Murphy for the District 96 school board. I have known Lynda for several years, and know she is the right candidate for this tough job. 

She has shown her passion for kids by being an active and engaged parent since her boys were in preschool. She is currently finishing her third successful year as the Central PTO co-president. She is very hard-working, intelligent, fair, and can make the tough decisions. 

She is respected by those who have worked with her in any capacity. Lynda has attended most, if not all, board meetings for as long as I can remember, so she is very familiar with board operations, and will be able to jump right in. She truly cares about this district and I believe will be a wonderful advocate for all of our children, while making fiscally responsible decisions. 

Her professional background in research will be an asset to this board in helping make these decisions. It’s definitely time for the school board to put the focus back on the students and education, and I know Lynda is the right person to help steer this district in the right direction. Our district needs her.
