Candidate for Charlottesville City Council
) Having spent the last 6+ years on the Charlottesville School Board including as immediate past Chair, Amy is a proven leader in the community, overseeing a dramatic increase in high school graduation rates to nearly 90% and the expansion of preschool programs for the city’s children. She has earned the respect of her constituents -- garnering more votes than any other candidate in her prior two races -- and mounted a strong race for City Council in Charlottesville at a time the city needed effective leadership more than ever.
While she fell just short this time -- by 55 votes, to be exact -- we're thrilled for her to continue her work on the school board. We know this isn't the last race for Amy, and we look forward to having her back again next time.
