Sanamo seeks re-election to School Board, District 12

Sanamo seeks re-election to School Board, District 12

I am Ann Bouvier Sanamo, candidate for re-election for Lafourche Parish School Board District 12. I am married, for 36 years, to Greg Sanamo and we are the proud parents of Kelly (wife Rachel).

I am a graduate of South Lafourche High School and received my Elementary degree from Nicholls State University and a Master’s Degree in Elem. (Science/Math Ed.) from the University of Central Florida.

My platform for District 12 Lafourche Parish School Board is simple yet challenging. It’s my priority to work for pay increases to meet state and national averages for Lafourche Parish School employees.

I will continue to support my proposal for a reduction in compensation equal to that of a 9-member board.

I am open-minded to ideas and opinions of others and I am willing to compromise if it’s in the best interest of Lafourche Parish Schools.

I’ve always considered one of my strengths to be available to speak with any person in Lafourche Parish about our educational system. That’s my open door policy. I’d like to schedule District meetings in my area 3 to 4 times per year providing updates and to receive feedback from District 12 constituents.

I firmly believe micro-management by school board members should not occur.

During my 8 years of service to Lafourche Parish Schools, as a School Board Member, I have been given the opportunity to see our state scores rise from a “C” School District to an “A” School District. This could have only been accomplished by the hard work of our school board employee’s with the collaborative effort of the school board.

I have also had the pleasure of working hand in hand with students, teachers, bus drivers, support and supervising personnel, para-professionals, custodians, lunch staff, parents, grandparents, concerned citizens, business owners, contractors, other elected officials (local and state), friends, family and the community as a whole to help make our school system an entity of which I am proud.

It would be my pleasure to serve the residents of Lafourche Parish as your Lafourche Parish School District 12 representative for 4 more years. As always, I am available for any questions you may have and my cell number is 985.791.5705.

I humbly ask for your support and vote on the Nov. 6th election.
