My name is Jeremy Stephenson and I am running for CMS Board of Education for District 5 in this November’s election, where Eric Davis is not running again and leaves big shoes to fill. I write to ask for your support.
The end of the 2016-2017 school year provides appropriate time to look ahead.
2017 School Bond
People ask if I will support the 2017 School Bond to which I answer unequivocally yes. CMS capital needs are vast. Schools need to be built both to cope with overcrowding, and to replace aging buildings. Anger over student assignment is not a reason to campaign against the Bond.
CMS needs your help. If you are receiving this email, you are probably helping already, but ask, are you helping where it is needed the most. Our most pressing problem in CMS is the number of schools where students are reading on grade level less than 30% of the time. There are countless ways to get involved, and CMS must not rely solely upon the backs of current K-12 parents. I will relentlessly reach out to every group I can to both listen to their concerns, but also put them to work where needed the most.
Stephenson for School Board – 11/7/17
I need your help. Forward this email. Like and share the Committee to Elect Jeremy Stephenson on Facebook. Attend an upcoming event (6/22/17 at Alignment Southwest Charlotte; or, 6/24/17 at Beverly Crest Clubhouse featuring Brandi the Wonderful Mini Horse, certified therapy animal). Donate a few dollars as every bit helps. Host a coffee chat for your friends and neighbors. Volunteer at the polls on election day. But most of all, commit to vote, make your friends promise to vote, because 14% voter turnout in local election dooms us all to poor results.
