Hi, I’m Sarah Beth Del Prete and I’m running for Woodbridge Board of Education and I am hoping to earn your vote in this important upcoming election.
For those of you who may not know me, I am a New Haven native who moved here 5 years ago. My husband, Dan, and I have 7 children ranging from 12 months to 12 years. We chose Woodbridge because we wanted our children to have the experience and benefit of a top-rated school system with a small town feeling and strong sense of community.
As the daughter of a retired, New Haven public school teacher, I understand and value the commitment and sacrifices our educators make. As a mom, taxpayer, and a local realtor who encourages people to move to our town on daily basis, I recognize that we need to not only maintain the school system’s top rating but continue to improve upon it, retain and recruit top tier educators, but also make sure our neighbors can afford to continue living here and not be squeezed out by high taxes. We need strong leaders who are prepared to work through challenges and who are committed to improving our educational system. I am someone who will advocate for our children and the future of our town, which is why I’m asking for your vote on May 3rd.
Since moving to Woodbridge, I’ve served as social committee co-chair on the Beecher PTO and volunteered within my children’s classrooms. Prior to becoming a realtor, I worked on several local and national elections, however this is the first election with my name on the ballot. I am excited for the prospect of serving my community. I am prepared to address the areas I know I can add value to and look forward to learning and growing with fellow board members as we navigate our way through the challenges that lie ahead.
No matter where you stand politically, I hope you will strongly consider voting for me, Sarah Beth Del Prete, as well as the rest of my team – “Row B for Balance” on Monday, May 3rd.
