A First for

Board
Within a month, a bit of
West Palm Beach Century
Village history may take place.
Jean Dowling, longtime resi-
dent at Salisbury I, is running
for a seat on the Palm Beach
County School Board. If elect-
ed, she could become (so far as
we know) the first person from
the Village elected to public
office in the State of Florida.
Many of us know Jean. She
is the president of her condo
association, has been a UCO
vice president, and has been on
numerous Village committees
and the Executive Board.
What some may not know
about Jean is her longtime
interest in education, from
having been a teacher herself
and been married to a Super-

intendent of Schools, through
various education-related po-
sitions she has held. Jean has
some definite ideas about how
the Palm Beach County school
system should be run, which
she will seek to implement if
elected to the School Board.
The election is on August 24.

After 18 years as a Greenacres city councilman, I will bring experience


in governing and education to the Palm Beach County School Board.

With your help we can ensure that the school board is making
children its first priority.

We can make sure that good teachers are fairly paid and poor teachers
are replaced.

We can demand that our schools are safe for teachers and children.

And I will ensure that the elected School Board sets policy not administrators.

Let's make Palm Beach County the best school district in Florida and one
of the best in the nation.
