Letter: The right choice

To all voters in Roaring Fork School District Re-1, I am writing this letter in support of Jen Rupert for school board. We first met while we were both teaching skiing and have continued that friendship for more than 18 years. Our sons are both third-graders at Basalt Elementary, and they have been very close friends since kindergarten. She was also his Soo Bahk Do instructor for a couple of years. I always have been impressed with Jen’s dedication and commitment that she demonstrates in both her professional and personal life. I always tease her because I think she accomplishes more in 24 hours than most of us complete in a week, all while having a smile on her face! I believe she is just the person we want representing us and our children. Her work ethic is remarkable, and she is always there to listen, connect and engage. She has the ability to spark action to create schools in which the next generation will grow to be intelligent, respectful, compassionate, hardworking, loving and fun members of our community.

Vote Jen Rupert for Roaring Fork School District Board of Education, District A, and don’t forget to submit your mail-in ballot by Nov. 3! Remember, this is a mail-in-ballot election only.
