My name is Lisa Russell and I am running for the Greenback 3rd District School Board Seat. My family has lived in Greenback for 10 years. Tim and I, have 5 children, 3 that attend Greenback School. As a member of the community, I have been a substitute teacher and an active member of the PTO. For ten years, I was employed as a Jr. Accountant. I feel that my strong financial background and experience would be an asset on the school board.

Some of the problems plaguing our school are well documented, as is evident by the fire watch that was needed for most of the school year. Many of these issues are very serious concerns because they involve the health, safety and welfare of our children and school personnel. It has been stated that we are to get a new school in Greenback. The property for this was purchased in 2005 and still nothing has happened. In the meantime our current facility must be safe for our children. It will take time and hard work to correct the many issues at our school. I intend to follow closely the work orders submitted to the maintenance department to ensure that work is done on a timely basis.

Our children’s quality of education is being compromised and it is time for someone to be a strong voice for them and have their needs met. Our main focus should be, Our Children, their education and safety. Children do not have a voice or a choice; they must attend school. I would like to be the Voice for Our Children and Parents. Please allow me the opportunity and privilege to do this.

Please consider me when you Vote - Kids First - Lisa Russell School Board District 3 - August 7.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself to you, I look forward to hearing from you. My contact information may be found below.
