Tony Burnette announced his candidacy for the Northampton County Board of Education.
In a submitted statement, he said, “I am asking each of the citizens of Northampton County for their support, prayers and their vote in the upcoming 2020 election. I have over 26 years of leadership experience and if elected to the board of education I promise to be that leader who will lead by example while helping to improve our school system without leaving any child behind.
“I will ensure our most precious resources, our children, have a safe and bully-free school system — a place where their hearts and minds are free to learn.”
Said Burnette: “Your concerns will be my concerns as we work together to move our school system forward.”
