Collier County Public School Board Endorsements

Feeling the current Collier County School Board has done an exemplary job over the past few years in increasing graduation rates to 92%, providing a safe environment for the students in conjunction with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office and practicing fiscally conservative management of the School Board’s budget, Naples Better Government is announcing its 60 percent or more vote of endorsement of each of the incumbents, They include:

  • Jory Westberry, District 1
  • Jen Mitchell, District 3
  • Roy Terry, District 5

Ten of the eleven candidates running for seats on the School Board were interviewed by NBG.

Candidate Kelly Lichter elected not to participate.

The NBG Board was impressed with the passion and willingness to serve on the part of all candidates; however, the wealth of knowledge and understanding of the school system on the part of the incumbents was evident and reassuring to know they are willing to work diligently in selecting a new superintendent for Collier schools when Superintendent Patton retires June 2023.

Candidates Kimberly Ann Boobyer, Dr. Arthur Boyer, Jana Greer, Jacqualene Keay, Timothy Moshier, Jerry Rutherford and Ana Turino are urged to continue their involvements in the schools. If used in a positive way, their talents and passion can help the school system to remain strong and focused on its mission, with the children, teachers, administrators and entire community benefiting.

Paid for by Naples Better Government Committee. Not affiliated with any candidate or political party.
