My name is Jeremy Stephenson and I am running for Mecklenburg County Board of Education – District 5, this November.
In 2011, I represented our neighborhood before the Board of Education on school assignment boundaries, and learned the long history of school assignment boundaries in our city. I campaigned for the 2013 School Bond, and learned the budget process. Now I am asked to run by two current school board members and a County Commissioner. It is an honor to be asked.
We live in unique times when many voices together call for greater attention to public education. I take seriously the non-partisan role of the Board of Education, but we need candid conversations and creative problem solving, maintaining equity and integrity for all stake holders. I can bring people to the table; advocacy alone is not enough.
Please support my campaign for the Mecklenburg County Board of Education – District 5.
Jeremy A. Stephenson, Esq.
2017 CMS BoE – District 5
