Karitsa Mosley Is Best Choice For School Board District 5

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

As a parent with a school-age child, it is very important who we elect. We need someone who will be a strong leader, accessible to students and parents, and advocate for our public schools.  

Ms. Mosley is a social worker with 10 years of experience in servicing our community. She believes in higher education as shown by obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology, minor in Criminal Justice and a Master of Social Work Degree. She believes our children deserve better and she will fight to strengthen teacher support and essential classroom resource needs, so that students will be prepared for real world experience.

District 5 community needs a leader that knows how to build relationships, and bring new and fresh ideas to the table, as well as work to ensure all Hamilton County students receive a quality education. She will be accountable for her decisions and hold others accountable. Karitsa will be the voice and advocate in building a better future for our children. She will work hard to bridge the gaps in our community that have left our children hopeless with a dismal future.  Join this movement by voting for a champion of change, who will work tirelessly to revive the community and schools in District 5.

This is why Karitsa Mosley is the best choice for District 5. On Thursday, please join me in voting for Karitsa Mosley as the next District 5 School Board member.
