Beth Coon’s service to our community is legendary. Her leadership and service is unmatched and she is always focused on doing things that improve our community. We all benefit from her goodness and I am thrilled to have her endorsement.

Maybe one of my favorite things about serving in our community is the chance to rub shoulders with so many people who are actively engaged in making Mesa better. No one personifies this more than Deanna and Manny. They are fabulous supporters of MPS and I’m thrilled they are supporting me!
“We fully support Jenny Richardson for Mesa Public Schools Governing Board. We need leaders like Jenny who know the community, who know what it is like to have children in Mesa schools. Mesa needs champions like Jenny who will make sure that each and every child has an opportunity to succeed.”

― Councilman Kevin Thompson
I so appreciate the endorsement of Mesa City Councilman Kevin Thompson. He and I agree on how important education is for the City of Mesa. A strong public school system keeps our property values high, crime low and helps attract quality businesses to Mesa.
“Mesa Public Schools is the largest school district in Arizona, and continues to be ranked as one of the top districts in Arizona. You don’t get there without great oversight by a highly performing school board, and that’s why I’m supporting Jenny Richardson for re-election to the Mesa School Board. Jenny is passionate about our community, passionate about education, and passionate about ensuring our children get a quality education in Mesa. She understands that our community succeeds only if our schools are successful, and that’s why I’m happy to support Jenny. Please join me in and vote Jenny Richardson.”

― Councilman Mark and Leeann Freeman
You might know the Freemans because of their great corn sold on Brown and Center, but they’ve been serving their neighbors for years. I have heard Councilman Freeman described as “The Mayor of Lehi” because of the service he gives there. And his wife LeeAnn is just as good! I’m thankful for their endorsement.
“We are happy to endorse Jenny Richardson for Mesa School Board. Our family is a product of the Mesa Public School system and we know how important it is to elect individuals like Jenny who are engaged in making vital decisions on the school board. She will work for what is best for the education of our children and what is best for the educators. She’s been involved for years with her own family’s schooling, and listens to the concerns of parents, students, and school teachers alike. Please support Jenny Richardson.”
