Westlake Board of Education Candidate: Joe Kraft
My name is Joe Kraft. I ask the citizens and voters of Westlake to support my re-election to the office of Board Member – Westlake City Schools. I have truly enjoyed serving my City and making a difference the last 4 years.
Four years ago, I asked for your trust and partnership to help make the district better. Together, we hired new visionary leadership. We empowered staff to create and improve academics and programming. We completed our facilities project with the new Westlake Elementary School, a design saving over $1.2 million annually in operating budget. We are fiscally responsible. We passed a significant permanent improvement measure to take care of district capital. We improved the stature and reputation of Westlake City Schools. We formed growing relationships with citizens and City officials. These are just a few of the things we accomplished together. Let’s continue our partnership.
We have more to accomplish. I want to work with all citizens on solutions for the District’s unused real estate. Let’s also create career paths for our future graduates. Courses and programs will continue to build knowledge and skills to prepare our students for jobs in Blockchain, Mars exploration, healthcare discoveries, new sustainable businesses and all the trades that support these industries. As our world moves faster and faster, let’s make certain to keep our students healthy in mind, body and spirit as we prepare them for a bright future.
My name is Joe Kraft. I ask for your vote on or before Nov. 5.
