Nickell for Aspen schools

Jonathan Nickell is the best person for the Aspen school board. He is:

• Dedicated to the teachers

• Brings issues to the forefront

• Finds out the facts

• Calm, reasonable and level-headed

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

• Doesn’t fly by the seat of his pants

• Well educated

Jonathan’s experience speaks for itself:

• Was a successful school board member (not in Aspen)

• Hired a well-regarded superintendent (not in Aspen)

• Served 15 years on non-school boards

We need Jonathan to finally help the board rid of policy governance, where the superintendent is their only employee, and help establish a warm, welcoming environment for all.
