My name is Gail Pough, and I am running to represent our community on the Aurora Public Schools Board of Education. I have lived in Aurora for 16 years, and I raised two brilliant and accomplished daughters – both Aurora Public Schools graduates – as a single mom. I know that access to an excellent education is the key to ensuring that our kids can unlock their limitless potential.
APS has improved in recent years, but students in Aurora are struggling. As a community and a district, I know that we can do better. It’s time for parents in Aurora to mobilize our power and demand urgent, courageous change for our kids. As a parent organizer with Together Colorado, I learned to not underestimate the power of groups of people. I’m running to represent our community and to fight for our students – I fought for my kids, and I’ll fight for yours.
Every child should be able to read, write, and do math at grade level. All children, no matter their socio-economic status, race, ability, or immigration status, should have an excellent education. If we all work together, we can ensure that our children have the education that they deserve.
