Letter: To all voters in the Re-1 school district

I’m writing to ask you to support Jen Rupert for school board. I have had the honor and pleasure of working with Jen for the past 13 years. When talking with me about the future of the Roaring Fork schools, Jen’s passion for excellence is obvious and contagious. She is committed to working with the community to support the children, the parents and the educators to elevate the quality of education in the Roaring Fork Valley. Jen is one of those rare individuals who truly hear each person they speak with and respect their viewpoint. I’ve watched her approach difficult situations with tenacity and a clear focus on the outcome. Our children deserve her support. Vote Jen Rupert for the Roaring Fork school board.
