Endorsements

Overall, Ms. Hough’s questionnaire and campaign web site demonstrate admirable consistency, and a stronger grasp of class size issues than some incumbents, and Class Size Counts is pleased to endorse Ms. Hough to represent the entire county as a School Board member at large.

Endorsed by Leaders in Fairfax County

Jeanette Hough will be a voice of reason on the School Board. With her background in economics she understands the fiscal challenges that face our schools county-wide. As a current FCPS parent, Ms. Hough is personally invested and equipped to serve our students and community.

I fully support and endorse Jeanette Hough as an At-Large member of the Fairfax County School Board. The challenges facing our county and schools are great, but Jeanette is a hard worker and a leader with fresh new ideas to address these challenges. The Board of Supervisors and School Board must come together in the face of these challenges. I would be honored to work with Ms. Hough to meet our mutual goal of making Fairfax County schools the best in the nation.

It is time for fresh leadership on the Fairfax County School Board. Jeanette Hough, Manar Jean-Jacques and Dr. Bob Copeland are committed to a School Board that works on behalf of our children, is respectful to parents, and transparent and responsible in its use of taxpayer money.

I am supporting Jeanette Hough because we need School Board members who will examine the efficacy of all FCPS programs and make budget decisions based on data rather than personal interests.
