I am a kindergarten teacher in Chapel Hill and had the pleasure of getting to know Penny Rich when her oldest son, Mikko, was a student in my class 16 years ago.
Penny was involved with my class from the very start. She remained committed to being a “class mom,” volunteered on every occasion, and joined me to read to the class whenever I called on her. Penny brought the class homemade latkes on Chanukah and taught the kids how to play dreidel. To this day, she has been one of the most involved and supportive parents that I have worked with.
I know Penny is passionate about our children, and as we face reductions in school funding from the state, it is important to have a leader like Penny in office. She will continue to protect teachers and students. I know that Penny will do everything she can to make sure we are being properly compensated for the important work we do and that our precious children have everything that they need to get the education they deserve. Let’s keep Penny Rich in office! Vote to re-elect Penny Rich, Orange County commissioner, District 1.
