Letter to the Editor: Grillo Announces Candidacy for HV School Board

To the Editor:

Hello Hopewell Borough Residents, I write to announce my candidacy for the 2019 Hopewell Valley School Board election and I ask for your vote on November 5 to serve as your representative on the school board.

A life-long Mercer County resident, I grew up in Trenton & Hamilton, and attended private and public schools. I graduated from The Peddie School in Hightstown and earned a B.A in English from Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA. Upon graduation, I volunteered on the Moravian College Alumni Board and worked hard to give back to the college’s community. I later served as Moravian College Alumni Board President and simultaneously served on the Board of Trustees.

I am currently an HR Director at Decision Resources Group where I serve as a strategic advisor and thought-partner for business leaders and the executive team. My husband, Michael, and I moved to Hopewell Borough in the Fall of 2017 to raise our children in this walkable, safe, close-knit community which provides its residents with exceptional education opportunities. As a mother of a four-year-old son and one-year-old daughter, I am deeply invested in not only maintaining the quality education our children receive in Hopewell but also building upon and expanding the skills and offerings provided, while being sensitive to taxpayers.

I have a passion for giving back to my community and my experience serving on previous boards and in a professional human resources capacity will help me add strategic and execution value as your school board representative. I look forward to meeting with Borough residents and listening to your priorities for our schools.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your voice as a Borough resident and an invested advocate for the families who have thoughtfully chosen to build our next generation of students here in the Borough.

Jessica Grillo,

Hopewell Borough
