To the Editor:

The Hefner family supports Janine Yorio for the Pelham Board of Education.

We are close personal friends of the Yorios, and know both Janine and her husband Jesse very well. We moved to Pelham the same month that the Yorios did, and our children have grown up together.

Janine works hard and has the firepower to make a real difference to our schools. Janine is incredibly focused on finances and fiscal responsibility. Janine and I have planned several fundraisers together (for the Junior League of Pelham and for the Pelham Picture House), and she is always singularly focused on the budget and how to get the most “bang for our buck.” That’s the kind of person we need on our school board. She is also very focused on how strong our schools compare to other public—and private—schools in the New York metro area, and how we can improve our schools to be among the best.

There are few things more important than having good schools. Janine Yorio will work hard to make sure that we have them. She will be a valuable asset to our school board and to the entire Pelham community.

Please vote for her on May 19.
