Vico Bertogli

My name is Vico Bertogli III, I’m twenty-seven years old, and I’m running for a seat on the Abington School Board. I’m currently employed as a Senior Application Developer with a ten-year-plus technology background.

Learn more about me and why I’m running.

  • Increase transparency around the decisions made by the School Board
  • Restore trust in the school board after the community’s trust in the board was wounded in 2018
  • Build out the STEM curriculum in our district using my background in technology
