I grew up in this neighborhood, and it is very dear to me. As an artist and as a parent, I have admired the vast improvements Tomas O’Grady has made to our local public schools. I admire the talented people he recruits to help get things done, and the changes he manages to make without stripping away the culture and character of this neighborhood. I wish there were more leaders like him. I trust Tomas. His approach however, is what I find most impressive. He plants gardens in seemingly infertile ground, steps back, and watches all our ideas bloom. He empowers us to finish together.
