I could not think of a greater asset to the Union School Board than the wisdom, wit and total commitment to community than Lisa Ford. I work closely with this tireless lady every day and can agree she always goes the extra mile to make things better!
The motto of Rotary is service above self, Lisa Ford daily lives this through her investment into youth and the community through her actions. Lisa is a asset to the Union Community and will be a great representative of our children, families, and community as we move to the future!
I have had the privilege of knowing Lisa Ford for over 15 years. When we met, I was immediately impressed with her integrity, love of serving others and her effervescent spirit. Lisa has never met a stranger and is the epitome of a community leader who is reliable, honest and a tireless worker. Once you meet her, there is no doubt of her love for her community, her job and her volunteer work. Lisa fully understands the roles and responsibilities of board governance and transparency. She is well equipped to handle what is required for the Union School Board of Education. Lisa loves Union Public Schools and she wants the best for all of our kids. She will ask questions, she will challenge the status quo, but above all else, she will work for the betterment for our school. Lisa has supported my children in the Renegade Regiment program where you will often see her at football games cheering on her favorite team the Redskins. Lisa was recently awarded the community impact award from the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce. This award was established to recognize women who are making a significant impact in their community. If you need someone you can count on, someone to be your champion, someone you can trust; Lisa Ford is that person. Without any hesitation, it is with pleasure that I highly recommend Lisa Ford to partner with Union Public Schools on their Board of Education.
Ladies and Gentlemen:
It is my distinct honor to endorse Lisa Ford for Union School Board! Long before I was given the privilege and opportunity to serve as a Broken Arrow City Councilor, I had the opportunity to work with Lisa in both her professional capacity on the Police Department and her capacity as a tireless volunteer. Lisa puts her heart into every organization she serves whether that is Broken Arrow Neighbors, Broken Arrow Seniors, Broken Arrow Rotary, or the Broken Arrow Community as a whole. She gives of herself without reserve and without question and does so with a perpetual smile on her face and a joyful heart. She is a true servant leader who understands that you can only lead those who you are willing to serve. I am confident Lisa will bring this same enthusiastic leadership and service to the Union School Board and will work tirelessly for the benefit of the students, teachers and parents of this excellent school district. I encourage you to cast your vote for Lisa Ford for Union School Board this February. You will not be disappointed!

Lisa Ford is an amazing person because of who she is and what she does. First, Lisa Ford is a kind, compassionate, caring, resourceful and professional person. This is demonstrated by her interactions with top Police and civic personnel plus colleagues, private citizens, and students. The last two groups include a large troop of volunteers who effectively reduce costs for the BAPD by performing a myriad of tasks. Additionally, she is involved in many community events and is on a first name basis with most of Broken Arrow’s religious leaders and service organizations. Who Lisa is cannot be defined by a job description but rather by her personality and authentic character. The second part of who Lisa is deals with her commitment to Broken Arrow and keeping our citizens safe. She is well respected in law enforcement in our town, Tulsa County, surrounding counties and in related entities as demonstrated by her awards and the many certificates of accomplishments and appreciation. She does an excellent job of coordinating the Citizens Police Academy – Basic and Masters level. She has served as advisor to the Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association which will provides service and support to the BAPD and community. Lisa Ford is a tremendous asset to the BAPD and our community.
Lisa excels in anything she is involved with, whether it is her job, her family, her friends or any person with whom she meets. She is equally at ease with the Chief of police as with a teenager working as a volunteer–I could go on and on. I am a better person from having her as a friend and as our volunteer coordinator.

With confidence, I endorse Lisa Ford for the position of Union School Board member. As a Broken Arrow city councilman for a total of 21 years, I have seen Lisa’s leadership abilities at work throughout our city and the Broken Arrow police department. Our community has been documented as one of the safest cities in the state, as well as the country. Lisa has been an integral part of the development, organization, and effective communication of protocols designed for insuring safety throughout our neighborhoods. Through her continual efforts as Broken Arrow’s Crime Prevention Specialist, she has helped make our community one of the safest and best. From my educational perspective as a 22 year instructor for the Oklahoma State Career Tech, I believe Lisa will successfully use her skills of leadership and her ability to coordinate activities, to improve our school system and strengthen the partnership between Union Public Schools and the City of Broken Arrow. I would encourage you to endorse and vote for Lisa Ford!
I have had the privilege of knowing Lisa for the last eight years through her active service on our Board of Directors. Lisa donates her time to Broken Arrow Seniors and several other community organizations. She is a great person who cares deeply about the community and its citizens. When there is a job to be done, you can count on Lisa! If you don’t know her you are missing out on a wonderful person. She will serve Union well!!
Lisa Ford comes with the proven ability to be a strong community leader. Her focus on family and service speak volumes about her tireless effort to make our community a better place. I firmly believe that a person with these values would be a great asset to the Board of Education and to be a voice for Union Schools.
