I’m writing to express my support for Cathy Olig as she seeks to continue her service as a member of the Menomonee Falls School Board. I’ve known Cathy for three years as a fellow community member and mother of young children in the school district and I believe she is a top choice for this role.

As a local business owner and a mother, Cathy brings both business savvy and compassion to her decision making. She is collaborative, seeks to understand all perspectives and believes in the tremendous opportunity to keep the School District of Menomonee Falls one of the best in the area. Cathy understands that doing so not only benefits our students, but also our growing community.

Our ever-changing world continues to bring more challenges and opportunities to all school districts. In order for Menomonee Falls to prepare our students for the future, we need leaders on the school board that have new ideas from the business world grounded in good values —Cathy Olig is one of those leaders. She is a tremendous talent and a kind person who takes pride in serving her community.

Please join me in voting for Cathy Olig for Menomonee Falls School Board on April 2.

I am writing to share why I support Cathy Olig for Menomonee Falls School Board.  I have known Cathy for several years and during this time I have seen first-hand her passion for our community and schools.  Through her actions, Cathy, has shown her dedication to our schools by volunteering in the classroom, working as co-PTO president during the transition year to the new partner school model, and working with the school board on issues involving our community and children.  In recognition of her dedication, the Menomonee Falls School Board honored Cathy in 2017 with a Friend of Education Award.  An award bestowed upon those whose efforts to improve or enhance education within the district are unique. 

In addition, to Cathy’s continued involvement in the school district, she is an active member of the business community.  She is a small business owner, member of the Chamber of Commerce, and participant in Leadership Menomonee Falls. 

It is clear from Cathy’s actions she is invested in the great things Menomonee Falls has to offer.  Not only is Cathy in the community and schools working to make our community great but she also can be found enjoying all Menomonee Falls has to offer.  Catch up with Cathy over coffee at the coffee shop, cheering in the stands at a softball game, coaching from the sidelines at basketball, or relaxing with her family over a sundae.

I encourage you to join me in voting for Cathy Olig for Menomonee Falls School Board.

As a Menomonee Falls resident and voter, I am casting my vote this April for Cathy Olig. Cathy’s credentials as a dedicated community member and involved parent are well documented and she would be an amazing asset to our school board.

As a parent of two elementary aged children, Cathy has a vested interest in our schools and our community. I first met Cathy in 2016 as a fellow PTSO council member. Cathy served as PTO President of Ben Franklin Elementary School during the 2017/2018 school year and navigated the first year of the “partner school” concept following the reorganization. Cathy also serves on the Menomonee Falls Collective Impact team, in partnership with the Police Department, School District and other community leaders, to identify and find solutions to issues in our community. In addition to her volunteer work, Cathy is the owner of Appeal Marketing. Cathy is currently serving as an interim school board member, filling a vacancy created by a board member who relocated. 

Cathy cares deeply about the issues surrounding our schools and community and how they affect our students and our residents. My experience with Cathy is that she is always approachable and interested in understanding all angles and opinions. She is well informed regarding the educational landscape of our community, state and country, and eager to share her knowledge with others.

Cathy Olig is a proven leader and advocate for our schools, students and community. I will be voting for her on April 2 and I encourage you to do the same.
