Thank you very much for taking the time to visit this website to learn more about me and my campaign for the Montgomery County Board of Education.  I hope you will find this website informative and easy to navigate.

I am grateful for your interest and hope to earn your support and your vote!

So, why me?  Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  Over the past 20+ years of personal life and professional service, I have had various roles.  Among these are:

  • WORKING MOTHER of three active Montgomery County Public School students (Elementary, Middle and High School);
  • TOUGH BUT THOUGHTFUL BUSINESSWOMAN who understands fiscal responsibility;
  • EXPERIENCED NONPROFIT LEADER with a demonstrated commitment to our community;
  • INVOLVED NEIGHBOR who appreciates the value (as well as the challenges!) of our increasingly diverse population;
  • CONCERNED TAXPAYER and proud Montgomery County resident

I am running for the Montgomery County Board of Education and ask for your support.  Our schools continue to rank impressively when compared to other states-- largely based on the quality of our Montgomery County Public Schools.  As a former Fields Road Elementary School PTA president and a County Commissioner, I know we can strive for even greater heights.  In these tough times, we need to be mindful of our fiscal situation and do more with significantly less.  We need to continue to respect, support and appreciate our teachers, administrators, and staff.  They are the gateway for ensuring that every child gets the highest quality education possible.

I am a first-time candidate with the support of my family, friends, and activists around this great County.  I would love to hear about issues that are important to you as well as any feedback you would like to provide.   Please send your comments to feedback@JeanneEllinport.org.

 I would be grateful for a donation of any size (click Donate to contribute) as well as your volunteering some time to help our campaign (click Volunteer to have us contact you about volunteering). 

Again, thank you for your consideration and the opportunity to share my thoughts with you.

Candidate for Montgomery County School Board
