Matt, Terry and Daniel for RFSD board

Dear Editor:

This season’s ballot is our community’s key to unlocking the benefits of great schools. There is a considerable undercurrent of dissatisfaction with the school district administration.

Voters, please do not confuse this issue with funding for children’s education. The community finally has the power to create a new era of school district and school board accountability in November. If you want this school district to become a “district of excellence,” seating a new school board majority is critical. The Roaring Fork School District administration must become more responsive to the concerns of parents and teachers so that our children can get excellent educations. When we have a school board majority that shares our sentiments, this will happen.

Please vote for Matt, Terry and Daniel for school board. They are three like-minded candidates who will create a board majority that will listen to you and act on your concerns. Anyone can vote for these candidates, regardless of where you live in the district.

In endorsing these candidates, I do not mean to disparage my friend Phil Weir (who is also running). It is my hope that he will continue to put his considerable talents into building the Roaring Fork Education Foundation into a powerhouse philanthropic group akin to the Aspen Education Foundation).

Please mail in your ballots this season and vote yes on 3E and vote for Matt, Terry and Daniel for school board.
