Political Debates
Do you plan to attend any of the political debates planned throughout the county in the coming weeks?

 
Cindy Shaw
 

To the citizens of Dade County. I, Cindy Shaw, would like to announce my candidacy for the Dade County School Board, North Dade District.

As a current member of the school board, who was appointed to fulfill the unexpired term of “Mutt” Massengale, it has been a privilege to serve in this capacity for the past 11 months. I am humbly asking my constituency for a full four year term to work in tandem with other board members toward improving education in our county.

My goals are to continue seeking excellence by listening to the concerns of the community and collaborating with other school board members with the superintendent. I would also like to continue work on the upcoming Charter School proposal, exploring additional avenues for funding to help reduce the cost of taxpayers, and search for additional programs such as the Chem 21 math program that we are currently piloting.

The Chem 21 mathematics enhancing program was brought to my attention through my daughter’s attendance at Lee University and her friendship with the chemistry professor Dr. Eddie Brown. Dr. Brown and his wife have been exceedingly generous with the gift of their math software program and tablet computers to supply a classroom of students. This has been of great benefit to our students, with no cost to our school system or taxpayers.

I will continue to acknowledge that each decision we make affects someone, be it a student, school employee or non-school affiliated citizen and will strive to make the best decisions consistent with the values of our county.

I respectfully ask for your support and vote in the upcoming election.
