Candidate Q&A

1. WHY ARE YOU THE BEST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE?
Allison Lassahn
I am the best qualified candidate because I am the most experienced candidate. I am the incumbent, serving for almost three years on the school board. During my time in office, I have taken over 120 hours of school board specific training. Before being elected in 2018, I attended school board meetings and workshops for well over a year to closely follow the work of the board and to understand what a board member truly does. I served on three different district level committees before being elected to the board and completed the Inside LISD program. I worked in municipal government for seven years which gave me a deep understanding of how local government entities function. Education has been a party of my life for many years, I am the daughter of a high school English teacher and the granddaughter of an elementary school secretary.
Soy el candidato mejor calificado porque soy el candidato más experimentado. Soy el titular, sirviendo durante casi tres años en la junta escolar. Durante mi tiempo en el cargo, he tomado más de 120 horas de capacitación específica de la junta escolar. Antes de ser elegido en 2018, asistí a reuniones y talleres de la junta escolar durante más de un año para seguir de cerca el trabajo de la junta y entender lo que realmente hace un miembro de la junta. Serví en tres comités diferentes a nivel distrital antes de ser elegido para la junta y completé el programa Inside LISD. Trabajé en el gobierno municipal durante siete años, lo que me dio una profunda comprensión de cómo funcionan las entidades de gobierno local. La educación ha sido una fiesta de mi vida durante muchos años, soy hija de una profesora de inglés de secundaria y nieta de una secretaria de la escuela primaria.

Lewisville ISD is heading into a new decade, with many challenges ahead. From local issues like ensuring each of LISD’s 50,000 students are equipped to thrive, to state issues like rising property taxes and shrinking state funding, Texas public education has never been more complicated. It is more important than ever for local school boards to be involved and engaged at the local and state level, with experienced leadership and collaboration. I am the candidate with this experience and that is why I am asking for your vote Place 2.
Lewisville ISD se dirige a una nueva década, con muchos desafíos por delante. Desde cuestiones locales como asegurar que cada uno de los 50,000 estudiantes de LISD estén equipados para prosperar, hasta asuntos estatales como el aumento de los impuestos a la propiedad y la reducción de los fondos estatales, la educación pública de Texas nunca ha sido más complicada. Es más importante que nunca que las juntas escolares locales participen y participen a nivel local y estatal, con liderazgo y colaboración experimentados. Soy el candidato con esta experiencia y por eso estoy pidiendo su voto Lugar 2.
