Mary Tomback is an active and engaged member of her community, attorney, and mother of three who is seeking to bring her commitment to St. Louis Park to the School Board. She has volunteered throughout her community in roles that have aimed to help reduce the barriers to achievement experienced by many SLP students. Her professional background as an attorney has equipped her with the tools necessary to grapple with complex issues and to work tirelessly to find balanced solutions. Her personal experience as a mom of kids with very different gifts and challenges has given her the insight and compassion necessary to support all children on their individual paths to success. Mary believes that wide-reaching partnerships between the community and the schools is vital to the success of the students and the continued strength and vibrancy of St. Louis Park. Mary is a first-time candidate whose passion for service and dedication to being "part of the solution" inspired this run for School Board.
