Public Forum:

Marilyn Franklin is the candidate for the Nicolet School Board. For the last seven terms Franklin has been an exemplary board member who has supported the growth of students into knowledgeable, skilled and confident citizens capable of succeeding in the 21st century.

Franklin advocates for students and works closely with parents, administrators, education professionals and other community members to create an educational vision that benefits all students and the community. She does all this with a clear view of fiscal responsibility to the taxpayers. Franklin has a strong understanding of the crucial role the board assumes in representing the community in this difficult financial time while creating an excellent educational future for the students of Nicolet High School. As a board member Franklin always has supported innovative curriculum, advancements in technology and took great pride when Nicolet was named a Blue Ribbon school, reflecting its academic success.

Relying on her wisdom, experience and understanding, Franklin played a pivotal role in the establishment of the district's strategic initiatives along with the selection of the new superintendent, Rick Monroe. Franklin has served as board president for many years, clerk and committees' chairwoman. She attends every board meeting and a majority of school events. Franklin is a member of Nicolet Parent-Teacher-Student Organization, Nicolet Foundation and Nicolet Recreation Advisory Committee; resident of Fox Point; and a parent to Nicolet alumni. Her support for Nicolet is bar none. There is no greater spokeswoman for our community.

Vote for Franklin on Tuesday, Feb. 17.
