On Tuesday, May 16, Canandaigua City School District voters will choose between three candidates for two seats on the school board. Our votes will go to Jen Schneider.

Others know Jen as a risk management professional and critical thinker. In addition to her work as an educator and popular Rochester Institute of Technology professor, Jen advises government agencies and corporations and helps them solve complex problems.

We know Jen as a witty friend who is whip smart and quick to laugh. When she commits to something, she dives in. She’s also the mother of two girls who attend Canandaigua schools. Like us, she must juggle the many demands of family life and is the first to admit that it’s not always easy.

Jen values education. She wants every child to succeed. She knows that education can transform lives and will work hard to make sure that the school district is working for every child, no matter their circumstance or ability.

We know that our children will be served well and the Canandaigua City School District will be in good hands with Jen Schneider at the table. Please join us in casting a vote for Jen Schneider on May 16.
