(Continued)

We have been very involved with this School District for many years, and we can see that things need to change. Jill Folsom and Bonnie Berry are both running for two seats on the Peru School Board. We believe that Jill and Bonnie are the beginning of that change.

We have known Jill and her family for 15 years. She and her family also chose to live in Peru because of our school and the community. If you know Jill, then you know that she is a hard-working, honest person who wants the best for our children and our school.

The fact that Jill is a registered nurse who also holds her master’s degree in nursing education makes her uniquely qualified for the School Board. We have seen Jill assess a situation and handle it with tact and decisiveness. She is straightforward, and she really listens to people. These are qualities that we need in our School Board members.

In our opinion, Bonnie Berry is one of the best administrators in the history of Peru. We were saddened to see her leave and now excited for her to come back in the capacity of a School Board member. Bonnie will skillfully work with everyone, from administrators to teachers to support staff, while keeping the community’s interest and taxpayers’ dollars foremost in her thoughts.

Join us May 20 in the High School gymnasium, and cast your votes for Jill Folsom and Bonnie Berry for Peru School Board. Vote for the future of our school.

Backing Berry

TO THE EDITOR: I am writing in support of Bonnie Berry for Peru Central School Board.

As a former board member I know the commitment required to be an effective and knowledgeable board member. I know that when Bonnie takes on a project, she is fully committed, whether that is in education, her long involvement with Relay for Life as publicity chair or her service on the Schuyler Falls Planning Board from 1999-2013.
