Dear Friends,

I am writing today to invite you to meet two candidates for Carroll County School Board. Amanda Jozkowski and Tom Scanlan are both experienced educators.  They have the ability to get our schools back to focusing on students, teachers and quality learning.

I hope you’ll join us for some good company, light fare and wine and hear for yourself.
