Cathy Nathan: Let me continue positive work on the school board

We are part of The Trust Project.

My name is Cathy Nathan, a candidate for Seat 6 on the Rochester School Board. I have seen first hand the power of education, community, and collaboration in Rochester. As the proud parent of two Rochester Public School graduates, I spent a decade as a community volunteer in our schools while also advocating for family engagement and education resources. It has been an honor to serve on the Rochester Public School Board over the last four years and to help our community navigate the complex challenges we have faced together during that time.

I am running for my second term in Seat 6 to continue the work I have diligently dedicated myself to: using my voice to champion the needs of all students, families and educators and using my vote to back up my words with actions and resources for long term student success.

I am passionate about hearing the voices and understanding the needs of our diverse Rochester Public Schools community and transferring those into district decision-making.

I am prepared to use credible information, best practices, and data analysis when considering my votes; I am prepared to use and craft policies and procedures to effectively govern the district’s work.

I am persistent as an advocate for better opportunities and resources and in holding the district accountable. I persist in strategizing how to best support student achievement and a positive learning environment in our Rochester Public Schools.

Success in the classroom begins when all students feel they are safe, welcomed and belong in their school community. It begins when educators and families are respected and supported with resources that meet their students’ needs. I will never stop fighting to make all this possible in our Rochester Public Schools. I would be honored by your vote in the primary on Aug. 9.

What To Read Next
The U.S. House appears headed to take our country and the global economy into chaos. They refuse to raise the debt ceiling to authorize payment of debts already incurred in exchange for brutal cuts in vital programs across the board (like Social Security and Medicare).
Hang onto your wallets, Minnesotans. The tax and spend Dems are in power. When the Republicans had the majority in the Senate, we generated a surplus and now Walz wants to buy votes by giving some of us a check. That money came from overtaxing us. Such as being one of the few states taxing Social Security benefits. My concern is that we will go down the road taken by bankrupt states like California, New York, Illinois and others run by corrupt liberal politicians.
I see that the World Economic Forum is about to meet again. We can be sure their main determination will be that the USA will have to pay for bailing out several countries around the world. We have several pressing issues at home that require funding, like our southern border and our energy production.
We have a stake in our community when we have a real voice in decisions that affect our lives, whatever our religion, race, or gender. To solve the issues facing our communities, we need everyone’s input at the table. But some politicians try to maintain power by fear mongering and breeding cynicism to limit participation in elections rather than relying on the power of their ideas to win over voters.
