I believe we share a common bond, a shared vision, a powerful sense of urgency, which is the success of our students. Consequently, I am seeking your support for our students.

The vision of my campaign is to serve the students of Birmingham as District 1's next school board member. 

I am a dedicated advocate for the Birmingham City School system and our children and have served in this capacity for over 15 years. Through my service in PTA leadership and on the Birmingham Education Foundation Board, I've listened to parents and students, so I have firsthand knowledge of what is needed to move our school system forward. I also have the passion and zeal to follow through with a plan that always support students, even if opposition suggest a different direction.

Our plan is as easy as P.I.E!  

P -  Provide the vision and leadership for high achieving schools!
I   -  Inspire our students, teachers, parents, employees, and stakeholders!
E  -  Educate, Educate, Educate

I am committed to making sure that our teachers have the resources they need in the classroom and that our children have the opportunity to learn and realize their dreams.

I hope that you will attend and consider making a contribution to support my campaign.

Contributions may be payable to the "Committee to Elect Jerry Tate" and mailed to P.O. Box 2941, Birmingham, AL 35202.  You may also contribute online at www.squareup.com/store/electtate
