As a mother of four, Julie understands the importance of investing in our schools to ensure students have the best opportunity to succeed. It’s hard raising children in the city, and that’s why Julie has been fighting for our schools and delivering results for them since she took office.
Some of the major school improvements Julie has won for the district include:
In addition to securing major capital project wins, Julie worked with the Department of Education and the Spence School to negotiate a groundbreaking partnership that allowed for local public schools to use the facilities at the Spence School Gym for physical education.
These actions mirror Julie’s long term dedication to improving our schools and our student’s experiences. During her tenure as the Chair of Community Board 1 in Lower Manhattan, she was instrumental in the construction of multiple new schools including the city’s first ever green school. She also founded NYC Kids Rise, a program that has broadened economic opportunity by establishing a college savings account for every public school student in New York City.
Julie will keep working hard to deliver a better school experience for District 5 families. She will continue to prioritize school safety by advocating for security cameras at all schools. She is committed to working with the Administration to build a new school in District 5 that will satisfy the needs of the community.
