Amy Pictor has served on the Westfield Washington Schools Board of Trustees since March 2014. The board’s president, she is seeking reelection to the District 1 seat.
“I’ve been an involved parent since our son started school in 2000,” Pictor said. “Volunteering
with PTO, room mom, field trips, after-prom and appreciating each of our children’s
teachers. We have a great school system. I wanted to give back to our schools and community.”
If reelected, Pictor’s goals include maintaining fiscal responsibility.
“This is our greatest responsibility to the community,” Pictor said. “Our tax rate has decreased 20 percent since 2018 and our debt has decreased by $6.5 million since 2019. We’ve reestablished a Rainy Day fund for the first time since 2012 and our 2021 budget has decreased by 3 percent. Even though our student enrollment has increased this year by 4.3 percent, we truly are doing more with less.”
Pictor wants to address the needs of the district through the Growing the Rock Way program. She also wants to support teachers, staff, parents and leaders who support students.
Pictor works at St. Vincent Health/Ascension Health in corporate human resources. She is a local coordinator for CIEE, an international exchange program, and she helps connect exchange students with host families. The Pictors have hosted three exchange students.
Pictor is married to Jim and has two kids, Will and Anna. She serves on the Westfield Young Life committee and hosts a small group from her church. She also volunteers with Open Doors and serves on the WWS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion group. Outside of work, Pictor enjoys the Monon Trail and taking regular walks. She also likes to visit Root 31 on Park Street.
