Campaign themes


Narlock explained her reasons for running in 2014 in an interview with West Allis Now:

We need to strive for academic excellence for all students. Continuing technology in the classroom is imperative. We must all focus on fiscal responsibility, end rubber stamping issues and stress open communications for everyone. I am concerned about our children's future and would like the opportunity to make a difference in the district by serving on the School Board. I will devote my time to listen. Not only to the parents, but to every taxpayer in our community. I will be your voice for the future.
