"It is an honor to receive GOBA's endorsement for my re-election campaign," Mrs. Gould said. "They understand the importance of a high-quality public education system to the value of homes and great neighborhoods."
"I am pleased to endorse Pam in her reelection campaign. She has been a great partner in finding creative solutions to serve our community.
