“I am so deeply humbled and grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support from each and every single person that sent me a note, made a contribution, showed up to phone bank, emailed a friend, knocked on doors, clicked the like button, called me with advice, shared your space, retweeted, reposted, talked to a neighbor and voted,” Scorza said.
“This win is a victory for all of us who believe that we can make a difference in our communities and that our voice matters! It’s an awesome responsibility and privilege to serve our communities whether you’re in the classroom as a teacher, leading girl scouts activities, mentoring young men, tutoring your niece or serving meals at the local senior center. It’s this spirit that binds us together and makes us stronger.
“I thank each of you for standing with me through this journey and also realize that the work ahead will be fraught with challenges and opportunities, both of which I’m looking forward to.
“I take this election as a signal to work collaboratively with my fellow board members, State Trustee Dr. Don Brann, City Officials, students, parents and teachers as well as key stakeholders to improve our schools so every child can get a great education.”
