Jennifer Shanley

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York, but for the past 12 years I have been a resident of the Village of Catskill. I am a Billing and Accounting Specialist for an international law firm in Albany, New York and a proud veteran of the United States Army. My husband and I have five children that have grown up in the Catskill School District. I am also a member and former board member of Congregation Anshe Emeth in Hudson, New York and a former board member of the Catskill Little League.

I am running for the school board because I believe every child in Catskill deserves an education that makes the whole town proud. Schools are places of hope and optimism. Public schools are where our future leaders, innovators, scientists, writers, artists and workforce are able to gain the necessary skills and tools they need ensure their own success. As a former board member, I am aware of the challenges and expectations that are required by a board to run a successful organization. I hope to bring the trust and transparency that the students and parents in the Catskill School District deserve.
