As the mayor for the City of Northfield, I have heard many concerns from our city residents regarding our Northfield Community School District. We are all concerned with our school budget and the cost to run our school district, the quality of student education, the professional staffing, the capital improvements, our future strategic planning goals, and the safety of our children.

I am endorsing and asking for your support to re-elect Board of Education incumbents Mr. Mark Bruno and Dr. Zubair Syed. These individuals are strong advocates for advancing the educational opportunities that our child deserve. They have the skills and knowledge to continue to make NCS “a great school district.”

I would be remiss if I did not speak about our third Board of Education candidate Mr. Brad Levari. I have received comments from our residents telling me of his good character, hardworking attitude and dedication to our school programs.

Finally, I want to recognize Board of Education President Mr. Steve Wynn. Steve has chosen not to run for re-election. He has served on our board for more than nine years. His efforts and work reflect the high standards and education achievements that our students and faculty have achieved.

Please consider on Election Day these three Board of Education candidates. I am confident, if elected, they will collectively work to help make Northfield Community School a school district that we can all be very proud of.

Erland V.L. Chau

Mayor of Northfield
