I'm Steffani Fine Mykins. Please join me at my home on Sunday, January 26 from 2:00 to 5:00 to meet Joanna Bache Tobin who is running to be our representative on the Board of Education. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll send you the address once you've contacted me.
I'm supporting Joanna because I think she has the experience and the skills to be a powerful advocate for the needs of the students, families and schools of the Annapolis area. Joanna is a parent at Annapolis High where she is the Vice President of the PTSA and she brings decades of experience teaching at the college and continuing education levels, serving on and chairing the board of a private school, and leading accreditation teams evaluating public charter schools around the country. To learn more about Joanna and her views visit her website at JBTforBOE2020.com or follow her on social media @JoannaBacheTobin on Facebook and @JBT4BOE on Twitter.
This is the first time we've been able to vote for our representative on the Board of Education, and it is a critical vote. Joanna is passionate about education, and is devoted to making sure ALL our children have access to the great education they deserve. She will advocate for smaller classes, working to attract and retain the best teachers by bringing teacher pay in line with surrounding counties, adding sufficient counseling, psychological, and social work staff, bringing school start times in line with medical recommendations and developmental needs, and funding transportation appropriately so that our children have safe, reliable transport to and from school.
Come and bring your questions and concerns. And get ready to vote in the primary on April 28th! I look forward to seeing you on January 26th!

Come on out and support a fellow teacher running for the AACPS Board of Education!
Erin has been teaching in public schools for 13 years, and is in her seventh year at Annapolis High School. During that time, she has worked with a wide variety of students in our community as an English teacher. She has also directed the Drama Company productions, involving hundreds of A-High students over the years. She has also co-led two exchange trips to Germany, continuing a 30-year relationship with the German American Partnership Program.
She is determined to advocate for competitive and equitable compensation for all educators, and improved wraparound services available in schools, increasing the social workers and counselors in each building (to name just two of the goals she hopes to achieve).
Come celebrate the end of the semester and find out more about what Erin hopes to achieve as part of the Board of Education - and share your own ideas as well!
There is a $10 suggested donation at the door. Anything over $25, and your first drink is on us! We accept cash, check (made out to Friends of Erin Lorenz), and PayPal (email@example.com).
Hope to see you there!

Affordable housing has become a crisis in our county and nationwide. Government policies, market forces, and changing demographics have combined to keep affordable housing out of reach for many of our fellow citizens.
In this enlightening, three-part series, experts and community representatives will explore the history of affordable housing and how government policies affected residents of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County—especially people of color (November 21); the challenges to be overcome (January 16); and proposed solutions for a brighter future (January 30).
AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND RACE
• Screening of the documentary Owned: A Tale of Two Americas.
This film examines the dark history of the U.S. housing economy and exposes a foundational story that few Americans understand as their own.
• JCarl Snowden, former civil rights director for the Office of the Maryland Attorney General, will lead a discussion on how federal housing policies in the post-World War II era impacted Annapolis and Anne Arundel County and why we continue to face affordable housing issues today.
AFFORDABLE HOUSING: UNDERLYING ISSUES
Lawrence Lanahan, a Baltimore journalist who has done in-depth, award-winning reporting on racism and housing issues for NPR, will discuss the impact of NIMBY (not in my backyard) attitudes and the challenges that community activists and politicians must address to implement affordable housing solutions.
Community representatives will provide testimonials on
• The lack of affordable housing in our area
• Illegal activity such as landlords refusing vouchers or requiring forms for creditworthiness
AFFORDABLE HOUSING: NEXT STEPS
Speakers will outline promising steps for making home ownership a reality and affordable housing available for all citizens in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County—including pending city and state legislation and public-private partnerships.
Speakers to be announced.
