I am a mom of Eden Prairie kids, and like every parent, education is top of mind. When my kids were younger, I did not spend much time thinking about who was on the EP School Board, but now I understand how critical the school board is to the success of our schools.
I have gotten to know Steve Bartz over the last few years and believe him to be an honest, engaged parent. He approaches the role of school board member with an open mind while bringing commonsense solutions to the challenges of our schools. This past year, I have watched school board meetings online and witnessed firsthand his demeanor in meetings. Steve is a listener. Steve speaks when he has something of value to add and asks questions when he needs additional information.
Steve has proven himself to be a strong, capable school board member. Early in Steve’s term, he won the confidence of his fellow board members when he was elected to be the treasurer of the school board budget. Steve is a natural leader and has shown he wants nothing but the best for Eden Prairie students and the community at large.
Reelecting Steve Bartz is the right decision for EP School Board. He is the best voice for the parents of EP kids.
