Thomas Herbster for North Olmsted School Board

Thomas Herbster
Herbster is a North Olmsted graduate who has served on the school board for 12 years, two of which were as vice president and one as board president. He was selected as one of the top five board of education members by the Ohio School Boards Association twice. He is employed by the city of North Olmsted as a state licensed class III waste water maintenance technician.
“I have been, and continue to be, the most visible member of the board,” Herbster said. “During any given month, I attend an average of three to four events each week. I have attended events when things are running smoothly, and more importantly, when changes are made or proposed that some may not totally agree with. Open communications are important.”
Herbster believes there’s still work for the board to do.
“Districts need to work closer with our nation and state leaders to stop unfunded mandates,” he said. “We need to engage them as much as possible to understand both our needs and limited funds to educate public school children. Taxpayers can only afford so much and the district stretch those dollars that we are given.”
