Ed Aboufadel for Forest Hills School Board (2022)
Promoting excellent, welcoming schools, offering creative and evidence-based leadership, to help our kids to thrive and our democracy to prosper.
The outcome of the election was not what my campaign wanted, although the vote was very close. With each of three candidates receiving around 1/3 of the vote, it was certainly a dramatic end to the campaign season.
I have called Mary Vonck to congratulate her. Mary has given extensive service to the district for many years, and she will continue to be a tireless advocate for excellent and welcoming schools. She is looking forward to working with the Board, which will include two new members: Malorie Ninemeier and Holly DeBoer. Congratulations to both, as well as C.J. Michaud. I believe the district will be in good hands going forward.
I will treasure my memories of this campaign, from learning about interesting aspects of the district, listening to voters, making new friends, and experiencing a campaign season as a candidate. I want to thank my supporters for all that you did for me, whether it was telling others about my campaign, putting out a yard sign, making a donation, or giving me moral support. And special thanks to my wife Kathy and my treasurer Tai. Special thank you to Support FHPS!
