Beth Little is the Can-Do Candidate for Summit Council


These days, politicians seem to be chock-full of promises for a better future, but it’s become tougher and tougher to figure out who’ll actually “walk the walk.” We hear candidates make campaign promises and share ideas for change, and while many of them sound great, it often begs the question, “But will they follow through?” 

I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that if you cast your vote for Beth Little, Summit Council At-Large Candidate, you will be amazed at how she will turn those promises and ideas into action and success for Summit. Beth truly embodies the idea that “volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy…when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”  And boy, does Beth vote!

Are you into a strong school system? So is Beth. She’s been an avid supporter, volunteer and Board member of the Summit Educational Foundation. She’s also served on the PTO of Lincoln-Hubbard and is currently PTO co-President at LCJSMS. Do you care about those in our community who need a hand? So does Beth. She’s volunteered at and/or chaired Summit’s beloved Santa Claus Shop for years. Do you think it’s important to have a place where all in our community feel welcomed and valued? So does Beth. She’s on the Board of Trustees for the Connection for Women and Families. Do you think the prevalence of social media is a challenge for parents? So does Beth. As a former child abuse prosecutor, she offered her expertise at no charge to the elementary school PTOs and gave presentations on Internet safety to parents.

I have had the opportunity to work with Beth in a variety of situations, and I can tell you first-hand that she is a roll-your-sleeves-up kind of person with a wealth of intelligence, passion, and that all-important can-do attitude.  She'll get my enthusiastic vote on November 7th, and I hope she’ll get yours, too.
