Additionally, I so appreciate the wonderful modeling of our democratic process for our students. With that in mind, I want to thank all those community members who worked such long days at our polling stations and special thanks to Kim Monzon, our Board of Education Clerk, who oversees our election process with unsurpassed dedication and integrity."
