Letter: A hardworking candidate

To all voters in the Roaring Fork School District Re-1:

All of us here in the Roaring Fork Valley understand the importance of excellent schools. As a mother of two young children, it is my No. 1 priority. That is why I am voting for Jen Rupert for District A school board. Jen is smart, engaging, passionate and hardworking. She loves this community and the experience her son is having at Basalt Elementary School. She is the type of person who can take challenges and turn them into strengths. Jen believes that all children in the Roaring Fork Valley deserve the best education, and she will work hard to make that vision a reality.

Please vote Jen Rupert for Roaring Fork School District A school board! We need her energy and her passion on the school board. Remember: This is a mail-in-ballot election, and ballots are due by Nov. 3.
