Our Community, Our Future
The job of the Leander ISD school board is to provide a clear way forward, especially in times of uncertainty. We should be focusing on the core values that unite us and not allow ourselves to be divided by our differences.
As a candidate for the Leander ISD Board of Trustees, Place 4, Jeff Johnson is the leader our community needs to steer us toward a promising future. Jeff’s professional experience includes bringing together organizations from across Greater Austin to identify their shared beliefs and pursue a common goal, while honoring the value systems of each.
A great education for all students, with exemplary educators leading the way and fiscal policies that provide a secure foundation for the future.
Jeff’s Formula for Clarity
We are living in uncertain times, with polarizing and complex problems before us. Our district’s leaders cannot promise with certainty what is coming next. When certainty isn't an option, clarity is the next best thing. So when dealing with the COVID-19 response and other rapidly evolving situations, the Board needs to make decisions, communicate clearly and avoid surprises.
Make a decision and explain why you made it.
If the decision may change, be clear about what indicators will affect that change.
Allow the community to monitor these changes together so that everyone knows what is coming.
As a school board member, Jeff Johnson can’t promise certainty – no one can – but he does promise to lead with clarity. Because people can only follow you when they know where you’re going.
Strong leadership takes work, and good leaders don’t just depend on their own experience. As a trustee, Jeff Johnson will represent the Families, Educators and Businesses in our district by listening to concerns, making decisions based on thorough research and planning with a visionary mindset.
Listening to you
Good decision-making depends on facts, data and input from experts – NOT opinions, emotions or hysteria. Jeff Johnson will ask good questions, dig into the research and make informed decisions based on the context of the issue.
Decisions we make today will impact our community down the road. We must find a balance between understanding our long-term growth and fulfilling our short-term responsibilities.
