I am proud to endorse Alison Keating for the Madison Board of Education. Alison has been an inspiration to me ever since I moved to Madison in 2011. At that time, she was the president of the Newcomers Club. She encouraged me to get involved with the group by inviting me to special interest groups like book club and the running club, and introduced me to Madison civic organizations like Neighbor to Neighbor and the ABC House.
Alison has continued to be involved in the community and has served a term on the school board already. She does extensive research in order to understand and act on every decision the Board of Education makes. She considers all sides of the issues to make decisions for every student, in every school, and from every corner of Madison. Her personality, intelligence, and engagement have lead Alison to develop strong working relationships with all of the BOE members and other elected officials in our town to get things done for our students.
I encourage Madison voters to re-elect Alison Keating to the Board of Education.
