Charlotte Greenbarg, a prominent school board activist, is endorsing Andrew Ladanowski in the Broward County School Board District 4 race. The election will be held on August 14, 2012, but Broward residents can vote early starting this Saturday.
The well respected Greenbarg is known in government and media circles for being a vocal watchdog fighting waste and corruption in Broward county.
Ladanowski is running against Abby Freedman, Shelly Solomon, Bob Mayersohn and Stacy Ritter’s “favorite” candidate Nick Steffens.
Here is Ms. Greenbarg’s email:
“I’m Charlotte Greenbarg and I’m asking you to join me in support of Andrew Ladanowski for Broward School Board District 4 on August 14, with early voting beginning August 5.
I’ve been a vocal advocate for ethics reform and accountability in education and government in general since I moved to Florida with my family in 1969, and to Broward in 1993.
It’s a pleasure to be able to support a candidate who has all of the attributes one would expect in a School Board member; experience, integrity and energy.
Andrew is a successful businessman whose integrity is essential as he works in the medical records field, one that requires strict confidentiality. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Andrew is Chair of the school district’s Facilities Task Force. He and a colleague went to a bus depot at 5 a.m. to see firsthand what procedures were. They discovered that the department employees weren’t using available technology, and that millions could be saved. This was validated by Sup’t. Runcie shortly thereafter.
Andrew has volunteered in the classroom, assisting in his son’s math class, and was appointed to the Advisory Board at Coral Springs Charter School by the Coral Springs City Commission.
Andrew organized a yearly community clean-up which was recognized by Coral Springs Mayor Roy Gold.
Andrew will be a valuable addition to the School Board as the district strives to establish trust and credibility in the electorate.
Thank you so much for considering my request.”
