Today is the day that, you will have the opportunity to vote for your school budget, library budget, busses and school board members.

I have met so many great people in this community, thank you for sharing your thoughts and concerns. I thank all of you for your encouragement, from putting a sign in your yard, or helping to get the word out. We have a great community filled with many voices, and we need to listen to those.

I have tried my best to serve you and the Albion School District for the last five years on the Board of Education. I would like to continue my service to our district and community. Having three children whom have all graduated from Albion, and having volunteered as well as a substituted in the district for about 22 years, I feel that combined experience, has made me a better board member.

Our students need excellent literacy, technology and people skills and we have an excellent opportunity to give them the tools they will need. Our district must identify career paths, job opportunities and prepare our students for them.

I believe in a strong community and school partnership, it is vital that we include community leaders and business owners to ask their thoughts and gain insights. Strong working relationships between administrators, staff and students.

Thank you, and please go out and vote!
