by Ned Portune,
I would like to sincerely thank the parents and residents within the Loveland School District for electing me to the Board of Education and allowing me to serve in this capacity – it is an honor and privilege to do so. And, I want to thank my wife Lisa, my family, and the many parents and friends who urged me to step into this role and who supported me along the way.
I also want to take a moment to thank outgoing members Dave Blumberg and Tim Taggart for their service on the Board. Both Mr. Blumberg and Mr. Taggart have served Loveland faithfully during their tenures – and I have no doubt they will both remain actively engaged in the community and our schools. If you bump into either one of them around Loveland, please take the time to thank them yourselves for their service to our students and community.
My goal in running for the Board of Education was simple – to bring a voice to the Board with a wide background of experiences, personal and professional, that I believe can benefit our district as it grows into the future. While I will be only one of five on the Board, I will use that voice to promote a culture of high expectations and an infrastructure of solid supports where each student is given the best opportunity to achieve to their potential.
There will certainly be a lot to do in the upcoming months, and I look forward to being a part of our growth and our students’ successes. Thank you all again. Go Tigers!
