Nothing like having unanimous support of your co-workers.
Christine Moore, the incumbent candidate for the Orange County Public School Board District 7 seat, was endorsed by all seven of her fellow OCPS board members. Moore is challenged by Matthew Fitzpatrick in the runoff election, who was recently endorsed by Isadora Dean, a fellow candidate in the District 7 race. Moore is running for her third term.
“I appreciate Christine Moore’s professionalism and positive, ‘can do’ attitude," said OCPS Board Chairman Bill Sublette. "Because of her keen attention to constituent concerns, it is a rare occurrence for me to get involved in anything in Apopka, Ocoee or Winter Garden. District 7 voters should definitely vote to keep her on the job.”
District 1 Board Member Joie Cadle Board Member spoke highly of Ms. Moore’s impact as a member of the Board of Directors of the Florida School Boards Association.
“Christine’s vision and organizational skills were very helpful as we worked on a Strategic Plan for the organization. She can take a complex issue and explain it in very clear language for all to understand. As a Past President of the group I count on her to help implement the new Strategic Plan and vision. for the children of Florida.”
“I have been with Christine in Tallahassee to advocate against bad legislation," said District 2 Board Member Daryl Flynn. "Christine was strong and effective in her public testimony. I also valued her assistance during county land use hearings for the fight to win county land use approval for a proposed relief middle school in my district.”
“Christine Moore has done a marvelous job for all children," said District 5 Board Member Kat Gordon. "She has consistently voted to help build schools in every area of the county. We couldn’t have done it without her expertise."
District 4 Board Member Pam Gould spoke of Christine Moore’s leadership in the western part of the county.
"I could count on her to review the options and stand with me to get the new relief high school open by 2017. School Board governance takes a team and Christine has been an integral part of the team that has built dozens of schools and improved career and technical education.”
“As a former parent advocate myself, I have appreciated Christine’s passion and fearless advocacy for families on the Board and in Tallahassee, said District 3 Board Member Linda Kobert. "Moms and Dads in District 7 can rest easy in knowing she hears their concerns and speaks skillfully on their behalf.”
District 6 Board Member and Vice Chairman Nancy Robbinson appreciates Christine’s leadership most especially on securing adequate local funding for arts, athletics and highly qualified teachers.
“Christine Moore has been tireless in her fight for secure funding for public education. Orange County students, teachers and families are indebted to her leadership and I proudly endorse her reelection to the school board.”
The runoff election is November 8th.
