Jeanne Broberg has strong family ties to La Cañada Unified. That bond made the decision to run for reelection to the district’s Governing Board in the Nov. 8 election easy.
All eight of Broberg’s children attended La Cañada public schools and four of her grandchildren are currently enrolled in the district’s elementary, 7/8 and high school levels. One more grandchild is soon to follow the family tradition.
“I want to provide the quality education that my children had for my five grandsons,” Broberg said. “All of us grandparents whose children grew up with such fine schools have a loyalty to the school district and want our community to continue to have the high quality schools that we had. I am well qualified to help with that.”
Broberg knows there will be plenty of challenges posed to the board in the coming year. Supt. Jim Stratton is handing over the reins to Wendy Sinnette, the current assistant superintendent, at the end of this school year and the board will most likely have to make more cuts when the state finalizes its budget.
