Halloran: I believe in the value of public education and in the Danville Public Schools. I want a voice in its continued success. I am uniquely qualified with my experience working in the school district, serving as a loaned executive to District 118 and spending the last 10 years working in industry at Mervis. I feel that I can bring experience from education, industry and the community to the board.
Henderson: I believe a strong educational program is necessary for our community to thrive. I spent my entire career as a special education teacher and administrator and have always looked for ways to meet individual student needs. As a board member, I will continue to work toward assuring board policies will provide students the opportunities for a quality education and prepare them for a successful future. I bring to the board an understanding of the district’s legal responsibilities and have direct knowledge and understanding of school funding. I have been directly involved in budgeting, grant writing, program evaluation and determining appropriate expenditures.
Hilleary: As it was when I first ran for school board in 1997, I want to make an impact for our children. They are our future and we have a responsibility to provide the best educational environment for them so they may succeed in life and become lifelong learners. I bring years of management experience as well as the financial background necessary to provide oversight to our district. I also bring 16 years of school finance background that will be invaluable during these troubling financial times we are currently experiencing.
Roth: I am running for the school board because I believe a good education will provide our children with a good quality of life for themselves and their children. A good education is critical for entering the work force or college. This is a very difficult time for the district and I have a record of success in problem solving. Problem solving is integral to the nursing practice. Health care is the largest industry in our community, and my background is unique in this area. Additionally, my husband taught in the district for 32 years and our children and grandchildren have attended public schools.
