NORWALK, Conn. This is a letter to the editor:
We have a great opportunity for the residents of Norwalk and that is to elect Geoff Kieburtz to the Norwalk Board of Education. Geoff's background speaks for itself. In brief, he graduated from Stanford with a mechanical engineering degree, where he played varsity football, and later went on to Yale and received a master's degree in public and private management. Professionally, he is highly regarded as one of the top equity analysts in his field.
He has first-hand experience with the Norwalk school district. Geoff has two children who have been through the Norwalk school system, and his youngest is now a sophomore in college. Both children enjoyed their educational experience here in Norwalk; Geoff would like to contribute back to the system so our children will be better prepared for their future.
Geoff understands the issues we face locally, nationally and globally that affect our schools. He has the knowledge and leadership skills to make for a brighter future for our children. One of the biggest considerations a parent makes when settling down is "How are the schools?" and Geoff understands that. As a country, our school system is not keeping up with the rest of the world and our rankings reflect that. We need the kind of leader that understands the broad array of issues that we have in today's world, and Geoff brings that special leadership to the table.
Geoff's educational background, professional and personal experience makes him a great advocate for us. My wife, Lynn, and I have a 6-year-old daughter in first grade at Rowayton Elementary School, Geoff would be a great advocate for our daughter and Norwalk!
Geoff is an upstanding citizen in our community, and I encourage you to get to know him better. His website is a good place to start.
Please get out and vote and tell your fellow residents of Norwalk, friends and family to support Geoff Kieburtz.
Steven and Lynn Blank endorse Geoff Kieburtz for Norwalk Board of Education!
