Kevin Robertson seeks your vote for school board

I am passionate about education and our Lake Oswego community. One of the core values in our community is our commitment to giving our children the best education and learning opportunities possible. Kevin Rovertson

Today we are facing decisions that will cause many changes in our schools and community. We will be choosing new leadership, charged with moving our schools through this most difficult of economic times. Remaining focused on the principles that have made our schools excellent requires a clear vision for the future and a strong understanding of what makes Lake Oswego unique and outstanding. I believe I have the understanding, vision and leadership qualities.

That is why I have decided to be a candidate for school board position 2.

I am committed to being a strong voice for children at all levels of education in our district. Decisions need to be based on facts and strategies that will drive positive outcomes for the long term. Leveraging my business experience in the financial world gives me a unique perspective and understanding of financial issues that are of paramount importance in the strategic decisions that need to be made concerning the direction of the district.

We must always focus on evolving and improving education here in Lake Oswego.

My commitment to the district was demonstrated by my eight-year commitment to service on the foundation. Serving as president of the foundation and also as chair of the endowment program, I learned that it is critical to listen carefully to the concerns of the district’s constituents. In leading the foundation, it was important to emphasize the need for stewardship and collaboration in moving forward with change.

As a resident of Lake Oswego for more than 30 years, I am passionate about the community — knowing that it is truly a special place. It is a community that values education, is generous and forward looking. It is, as Family Circle has pointed out, one of the 10 best communities in the country in which to raise a family. Having two daughters in the district in a myriad of activities and Pamela, my wife, as a president of NCL and the Lake Grove PTA, we are an involved family. I understand the concerns that parents face with their children’s educational experience and will be a school board member who cares about those concerns.

I ask for your vote and your support for school board position 2 because I know I can work well with our community to sustain our tradition of excellence. 

All students. All schools. One district.

Kevin Robertson, Lake Oswego, is a candidate for Lake Oswego School Board Position 2.
