Thank you to everyone who has voted or is about to vote. And a special thank you to the unsung sheroes and heroes of the election: our Montgomery County Board of Elections employees and those with the Maryland State Board of Elections.

Two Days Left to Vote Geller for BOE!
There are less than two days left to mail your ballot in for Paul Geller for Board of Education At-Large.
Paul is the only candidate who has been a full-time volunteer advocate for MCPS since 2012, and will also dedicate himself full-time to being an outstanding member of the Board of Education. He also has been more successful at advocating for MCPS than anyone else ever before - $462,000,000 more in Operating Budget funding alone since 2016...and counting! He was the first person to break Maintenance of Effort. He also has been very successful at bringing home funding from Annapolis time and time again.
Paul will hit the ground running from day one. He is a past President of MCCPTA, a former Cluster Coordinator, and record breaking PTA President. For four years he hosted the program MCCPTA Presents on MCPS-TV. He has worked with all eight members of our current Board of Education, and enjoys a terrific working relationship with MCPS Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith, and other staff across MCPS. Paul has worked with and knows all nine of our Councilmembers as well as all thirty-two members of our delegation to Annapolis.
A vote for Geller is a vote for:
Academics! Every single one of our MCPS students should be ready for college or career by graduation.
Construction! We need to cut through the endless backlog of projects by utilizing renovations whenever possible. And, we must open up bidding for construction projects to all qualified and capable contractors. Any new construction must be Net Zero...buildings that generate their own energy from solar and geothermal. and, at long last, we need to add solar panels to all schools when practical.
Less standardized testing! Teachers complained. Students complained. And Paul has listened. When elected, he will work with his colleagues at the local, state, and national levels to cut the amount of standardized testing to the bare minimum.

NANCY FLOREEN ENDORSES PAUL GELLER FOR BOE!!!
Legendary former Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Floreen has enthusiastically endorsed Paul Geller for an At-Large seat on the Board of Education. Floreen served as Council President in 2016, and worked tirelessly along with Paul to get the record breaking 2016 Education First Budget approved.
"It was her heroic stance in support of this bill that enabled our students to benefit tremendously from lower class sizes, and several new initiatives. So many people told me it would be impossible to exceed MOE (Maintenance of Effort). However, Nancy Floreen listened, and worked with me to make it happen." Paul Geller
