Le is a retired elementary school teacher who worked in Chicago schools for about nine years.

Broz is co-owner of Clock Tower Pizza in downtown Lake Geneva. He is running for his first elected position.

Why do you want to be a member of Joint School Board No. 4 in Geneva? As a parent and former teacher, I wanted to stay on top of my children’s education and resume education at some level.

What do you think are some of the issues currently affecting the school district? Registration is a big deal. Less than 50% of the student body lives in the district.

What do you think makes you a quality candidate for the school board? I was an elementary school teacher for nine years in Chicago, so I have some idea of ​​how the school systems work. As the current parent of two young girls, I am also in contact with the next generation of students and their parents. As a moderate homeowner, I believe I am also tuned into the sentiments of the median ratepayers in this district.

Occupation: Owner, Clock Tower Pizza

Address: W4132 Butternut Lane, Lake Geneva WI 53147

Community Involvement: Business owner in the Lake Geneva basin, active with Woods School and various other missions, organizations and local actions to promote businesses in the region.

Previous experience as an elected official: This is my first rodeo.

Why do you want to be a member of Joint School Board No. 4 in Geneva? My goal is to provide stability and leadership to the school as a whole. For me, this includes the school administration, teachers, students, and families of every student who attends Woods School, even if they are enrolled in Woods.

What do you think are some of the issues currently affecting the school district? Recent unrest has affected the school district and the world at large in mostly negative ways. Woods School has been particularly affected by this unrest because we have such a small population. Losing or gaining one or two families each year has a huge impact on the school’s future prospects. Our school must focus on academic excellence.

What do you think makes you a quality candidate for the school board? I have a very solid background and understand how this foundation has enabled success in my own life. I want this for my own children, and I believe every child should have access to a similar school experience.

I believe I understand Lake Geneva and the legacy of the Woods School. I envision a future that builds on this legacy. I am a “lifer” from Lake Geneva in the sense that I fully intend to stay in this community.

I have a responsibility to make it as good as possible and to inspire others to do the same. It starts in my home, extends to my children, their schools, my family’s business and the community at large. We all need to do our part today if we want a better tomorrow.
