We as Columbia County residents are proud of our school system and its record. However, we must not rest on the demographics of achievers and the work of our parents and teachers and be complacent. Our school system has so much potential to be the best of the best, and to reach that potential, we need a representative on our School Board who will be the most responsive to the needs of our children and most effective in leading us to higher levels of excellence.
My wife and I will be entering our fifth child into the school system this fall. We want a school board comprised of parents of students who are not afraid to stretch for higher standards and who ask the tough questions and fight to do the right thing. That’s why I’m supporting David Dekle for school board.
He’s an accomplished local attorney and businessman. He will serve wholeheartedly with the utmost effort for the sake of his and our children, and then get out of the way.
By the way, he has five children in the system so I know his interests will be in the right place.
