Mary Foreman possesses the integrity, experience and competence to earn your vote as a member of the Manatee school board. There are many reasons I am actively supporting her.
First, as a CPA, Mary knew, as many did, that the financial reports were highly suspect and she was outspoken with her concerns. When the board established the volunteer citizens’ audit committee in 2013 she stepped up to volunteer and was appointed. She knows all the myriad details as well as the shortcomings and problem areas. Her discipline and dedication caused her reappointment and she is committee chair.
She has worked collaboratively to ensure that the resources are properly spent for student learning.
As the parent of two adult children with professional careers (law and IT), she understands fully the commitment, guidance and patience necessary to see that a child becomes a good adult.
I fully support Mary Foreman and know from my own interactions with her and my own school board service that she will be an excellent member of the Manatee School Board. Please join me.
