I'm happy to support Nicole Rajpal for the BVSD Board of Education. She will bring a lifelong passion for education and her extensive experience working hard for our public schools to the Board. I know she'll help move BVSD forward on behalf of all school-age children and their families. ~ Casey Gallagher

Nicole is highly qualified and has the much-needed perspective and experience required for this important role. - Dana James

Perhaps the best reason to vote for Nicole is that she is one of those rare "bird" that fly in a flock, keep everyone safe and in close proximity - even if it requires much from her. Not many people like her (I have been volunteering the the district for 5 years) and none like her running for office. - Ralph Frid

Thoughtful and fair-minded people, like Nicole, are worth their weight in gold on a school board.  - Julie Phillips

I worked closely with Nicole on the BVSD DAC policy subcommittee for a few years and also participated in DAC while she was the Chairperson. At the start I thought she was an extremely educated BVSD staff employee who clearly was excellent at her job. Come to realize she was a parent volunteer. I felt honored to have the opportunity to work alongside Nicole, learning from her wisdom about the workings of BVSD. I admire and appreciate her ability to openly listen to all strongly felt opinions on challenging topics, respond respectfully and fairly, and process all the input to help make an informed decision that the majority agrees upon. She cares deeply and thinks about what’s best for our children and BVSD as a whole. Our BVSD community would be fortunate and lucky to have Nicole on the Board of Education. ~ Amy Slaymaker

For the past four years I have worked as a representative alongside Nicole Rajpal on the BVSD District Accountability Committee (DAC). During my tenure, this volunteer committee worked tirelessly during the time of three different superintendents to improve communication and collaboration with district leadership, to provide thoughtful and extensive feedback on complex topics brought forth by the board of education and the community at large, to manage and integrate multi-tiered input from a vast and varied school and parent community, and most importantly to seek the most equitable path forward for all students of BVSD in every area of our state-mandated work. During this time, Nicole was an effective, compassionate and professional leader on the executive team, often navigating sensitive and complicated issues with grace, clarity and precise communication and collaborative decision-making. What has impressed me most is Nicole’s steadfast commitment to seeking all sides and opinions she can gather and providing clear synthesis, meaningful analysis and guidance to the larger group as we often have extreme time limits for highly detailed and complex feedback. Nicole is well-versed in the roles of school board members and has a strong command of budget and policy topics. What is more, Nicole genuinely and deeply cares about the children of our community and is ready to listen and respond to all voices.  ~Amy Lynn

She is a hard worker and has always made quality public education a top priority! - Francesca Gettelman
