Upcoming Ketchikan School Board Election, Choose Carefully Our Children's Future Depends On It

By Charles and Debi White


September 15, 2022

Dear Voter,

It is with great hope and a clear vision, an awareness of the problems adolescents face today, that we endorse Robb Arnold for the Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District School Board. Robb has this vision and awareness, he has an honest pragmatic, and hopeful insight into our community's educational problems, acquired by his willingness to examine issues and listen closely to the public's questions and concerns. Robb will be a strong and vibrant advocate for our children and young adults. Robb will advocate for a recruitment plan that will assure our children have a qualified, richly diverse staff of teachers and administrators, to support expanded professional development; to advocate for increased accountability of administrators and teachers that will help close the minority achievement gap, well providing an efficient monitoring of district programs and services for all our children. Robb will work to strengthen the engagement of parents, students, community, leaders, and stakeholders in helping address the challenges facing our school district. Robb is a long time resident of Ketchikan married with a daughter in Jr. High School. Robb is employed by the State of Alaska as a Chief Purser on the Alaska Ferry Marine Highway System.

We strongly urge all voters to cast a ballot for Robb Arnold in the upcoming election.
