Re: George Duehring's profound Sept. 24 letter supporting Lawrence Hammond for Columbia County Board of Education chairman:
While Hammond may have had great achievements within the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce as an avid volunteer and most recently as its vice chairman, what are his qualifications to lead our children's future?
Duehring labels Hammond as a coach, not a boss; what can he coach our children in when he has no experience with school board issues? Is the same chamber that has been vital to the county's growth and success endorsing a candidate that has not provided the voters a platform? Being able to be a vice chairman and volunteer countless hours at the chamber does not give him the experience and leadership needed to lead thousands of children in a school system.
Lee Muns is the clear choice to lead our children as they face the upcoming challenges of the next four years! His leadership and experience is second to none among his opponents. Leaders lead off experience which Muns has, with him serving on the school board for four years and other boards such as the Professional Standards Commission, of which is he is vice chairman. Muns brings a plethora of qualifications to the table and would be substantially beneficial to any educational body on any level.
So I ask something a little different of the voters of Columbia County than Duehring: Do our children a precious favor to protect the time-honored treasure of our education system and keep Hammond as vice chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, and vote Muns for Columbia County School Board chairman.
