As a 20-year educator at Edgewood Middle School, I have had the pleasure of interacting with many devoted parents and families. Bennet Lasko and his family were one of those. Years later as a member of SCFFAC, Bennett was one of the many committed community members on the general committee. I was always impressed by his devotion to the whole district, not just the schools his children attended.
His personal experience as a child attending our schools and as a parent with children in the schools added to his perspective and desire to help the district reach a good financial and educational solution. He was always able to focus on the key points and work towards consensus of the group.
The key point to understand is that Bennett is not relying on the past; keeping an open mind, he is willing to look at new solutions and move our district forward in a way that will allow for a stable financial situation and continued educational excellence.
He can evaluate and analyze new ideas; he is not stuck in the past. His calm demeanor, respectful tone, and even-handed ability to listen to all sides makes him a perfect candidate for District 112 School Board. Please vote Bennett Lasko for D112 School Board.
