Long-time Westlake resident and former student to run for school board

My name is Tony Falcone and I am running for the Westlake School Board. I am asking for your vote on November 8. 

I am a proud product of Westlake schools – grades K through 12 – and Westlake teachers, administrators and coaches all played a significant role in making me the person I am today. I am absolutely committed to ensuring that each and every student has a similar, positive experience.

I want Westlake Schools to be as great as they can possibly be. Excellence in our district benefits students, administration, staff and taxpayers alike. That said, I do not believe in excellence at any cost. I believe in excellence at an excellent value.

As a board member, I promise to:

  1. Have an absolute passion for the district - and remember that my first priority is the educational welfare of the students.
  2. Recognize that my job is one of governance. It is my responsibility to help set the direction for the district, then allow the superintendent and staff to do their jobs.
  3. Hold all employees of the district accountable for their performance.
  4. Continually look for ways to improve the district's budget position – from both a revenue and cost perspective.
  5. Provide a voice for all stakeholders – including students, staff, administration and taxpayers. 

Thank you,

Tony Falcone
