‘I support Eaton, Lillian and Davis for School Board’

    As a former member of the Warwick Valley School District Board of Education, I know our children deserve the best leadership for the betterment of their education and our community. Your vote for Eaton, Lillian and Davis will assure Warwick schools get that leadership.

    Dave Eaton retired from a career in the medical technology field and his wife Robyn is a retired elementary teacher. They raised two children who graduated from Warwick schools and have successful careers after college.

    Dave is an example of lifelong learning and embraced the benefits of public education. He supports a solid curriculum, including music, athletics and drama, for a well rounded educational experience.

    He has served on Warwick’s school board for 16 years, with six years on BOCES board and a representative of Orange County School Board Association.

    I have the pleasure of serving the Warwick Valley Rotary Club with Dave, where he served as president. He not only has my vote, but my respect, gratitude and friendship.

    I met Lynn Lillian twelve years ago when we both ran for BOE for the first time. We were elected and attacked our new roles with wide eyed enthusiasm. Lynn continued to serve and became BOE president. Her intelligence and commitment is a sure fit for continued success with our school district’s future decisions.

    Completing this impressive slate of board members is Sharon Davis, who was voted into BOE the year I stepped down. Sharon hit the ground running and is current BOE President. The nine years she’s been on board, she has served as president for five. Talk about solid experience. Sharon is consistent, smart and a born leader.

    Warwick’s schools deserve the best – experienced, non-partisan board members. Eaton, Lillian and Davis are that leadership team.
