Nora Cietek to run for Sarasota County School Board, District 5

Venice, FL — Today at 9:00am Nora Cietek will file with the Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections to run for election to the Sarasota County School Board, District 5.

A resident of South County, Nora comes from a lower-middle-class family with ten children in upstate NY, where her father was the custodian at a school for children with developmental disabilities, and her mother was a school bus driver. She began her career as a teaching assistant in that same school and then became the first person in her family to get a college degree.

Nora then embarked upon a 30-year career with the Schenectady NY Public School System. She served as an ESE Teacher, an Assistant Principal, Principal, and the Assistant Director of Special Education for the school system. During that time, she got her master’s degree in Educational Psychology and she and her husband Scott raised three children: an Investment Banker, an Attorney, and a Chemical Engineer.

“I love children. I am, above all else, an educator, and I still have a great deal of time, talent, and energy to give to the students in my community. I can have the most significant impact as a Sarasota County School Board member.

For me, it’s all about our children and the teachers and staff that work tirelessly every day to make sure that those children have access to all the resources that they need to strive to be the best they can be”, said Nora.

Learn more about Nora on her web site, electnora.com, or on her Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube pages all of which will be active by close of business today.”
