Dear Voters,

I do apologize for just recently adding my name to the list of current school board candidates. I had every intention of filing my candidacy earlier this year but do to unforeseen circumstances I was not 100% sure that I could commit the necessary time. Serving the public in this capacity I strongly feel requires nothing less that 100% commitment. However the great gift of life is that circumstances often change and I was afforded the opportunity to take on a new challenge. I am committed!

Yes, I want your Write-In vote and I would like the opportunity to serve and represent the people of this community by being elected to the School Board on October 4th.

Ketchikan is a great community and we can strive for excellence if we are all in this together. There is no greater cause than advocating for this communities future thinkers, leaders and problem solvers.
