It fills us with optimism to say that Paul Buzzell and Jason Levash were successful in their election bids for the Mequon-Thiensville School Board. We believe they will serve our community well and provide competent leadership to continue the district’s vision and help solve the challenges it faces.
We are exceedingly grateful for the hard work of everyone that came together to make this happen. It was another shining example of how people of different viewpoints can work together and produce results when they focus on being open and honest with one another in the service of others.
Our children are facing an uncertain world that is changing more rapidly than ever before. That momentum will only continue to increase. It is critical that we give them the tools to be able to navigate that world. The only way we can accomplish that is to work together and reject the distractions designed by outside influences to divide us for their own benefit.
Differences of opinion are welcome. Bigotry, cruelty, and false narratives are not. There are multiple ways to solve problems and sometimes those solutions have unintended consequences. To overcome, it is imperative to concentrate on keeping the community in mind and remember that we’re all human. We all have faults, but together we can achieve great things.
In the spirit of community, we ask that you please take down your signs. Please hold on to your Support MTSD signs should they ever be needed again. We’d also be happy to collect any signs for you.
As a final note, we would like to congratulate Jill Chromy on running an admirable campaign. As we’ve mentioned before, her participation in the recall last fall remains troublesome. However, the civility with which she conducted herself during her campaign was an appreciated contrast with the recall’s divisiveness and tactics. We look forward to any material ideas and productive solutions she may bring to the table for our district.

Faced with a novel, globally catastrophic event, everyone in the MTSD worked tirelessly throughout the year to ensure the best possible outcomes for our students. We are incredibly fortunate that our children and educators have been and continue to be resilient. We should be proud of our district and applaud their efforts.
Effective school boards are accountability driven, spending less time on operational issues and more time focused on policies to improve student achievement.
We should not fall prey to the partisan politics movement aimed at school boards that is sweeping across our nation. We are better together. Our volunteer School Board members are servant leaders who work together with administration toward our district’s vision: "Each student, every time, empowered to succeed.”
