I am very pleased and proud to support Leila Morrelli for Westfield’s Board of Education! I have known Leila for five years, since our kids met at Jefferson Elementary School.

Leila’s dedication to her family and to her work as a speech language pathologist in Mountainside is paramount. Leila is a natural advocate — for her children and for her students.

She is practical and strategic and has been a much-appreciated sounding board for me and many others over the years, particularly regarding special education services and related education laws, which can be very complicated and daunting to maneuver.

Leila is particularly suited to make an exemplary addition to Westfield’s Board of Education because of her perspective as both a parent and an educator. Leila has tremendous energy and passion for her work, for her family, and for this town. She will fight to make sure that all students in Westfield have equal educational opportunities and the resources that they need to excel. She is a steadfast and devoted friend. These are all qualities that make her supremely qualified for the position.

I look forward to the opportunity for Leila to be able to put her skills to work for the benefit of all of Westfield’s children and I strongly encourage you to vote this November for Leila Morelli for Westfield’s Board of Education.
