Why do I feel Janine Cook would be a great addition to Wakefield School Committee? I would describe Janine as informed, loyal, committed, passionate, never afraid to speak her mind and exactly the type of person you would want in your corner.
I know Janine fully understands the commitment involved serving on the Wakefield School Committee and I also know she would do an outstanding job. Janine has proven herself to be hard working and have excellent follow-through with the incredible amount of experience she has working as a volunteer in our schools and community. This work has also left her with a vast knowledge of the issues our schools are facing. Janine has been giving to our community for many years and we would be fortunate to have her on the Wakefield School Committee.
I first met Janine Cook several years ago over the phone. A mutual friend sang Janine’s praises and suggested I reach out to her for help with something so I did. I had never even met this woman yet she was ready to jump right in and do what she could. Why? This is what she has been doing in our community for years, giving her time to help others and advocating for children in our community. She is an amazing source of support.
I do not know where Janine gets her energy. She has helped a great many families who have needed assistance advocating for their children through her work on the Special Education Parent Advisory Council, she has worked to help PTO’s, she works tirelessly for the Best Buddies program, organizes and runs dances for our middle school students, is a Wakefield Adult Mentor and so much more.
I have also had the pleasure of working with Janine’s daughter, Erin, when she comes to the Greenwood School with the Best Buddies program to read to students. Erin is another example of the great work Janine does.
Please join me on Tuesday and cast one of your two votes for Janine Cook for Wakefield School Committee.
