Chris Kinter would be an asset to Albion Board of Education

Chris Kinter is someone I believe I know well. If you know him, you may imagine how encouraging it was to a retired teacher living in the Albion school district to learn that he was running for Albion school board.

Though enumerating them would take a while, I will mention just a few of the reasons for my enthusiasm for his candidacy in the interests of saving the reader’s precious time.

Chris is invested in our community and continues to pour his heart and soul into making it a better place for all of us to live.

Much of his focus has been on doing for the youth living here. In running his ice cream shop and being a great dad to his school-age children, Chris and his wife, Karen, make Albion a better place for all of us.

Chris enjoys young people and is, himself, young at heart. To me, those qualities are important prerequisites for a position on a school board, just as is wanting only the best for our youth. Having school age children of his own helps him understand their struggles, as does a good, honest, memory.

While parents, teachers, support staff, counselors, administrators, bus drivers, et. al. must be there when their charges reach out for help, having committed, intelligent, forward-thinking leadership determined to set a good example on the school board helps immensely.

Chris gets the big picture, and I am delighted that the young people living in the Albion School District may have the opportunity to benefit from the wisdom that an outwardly happy-go-lucky neighbor of ours would bring to a position on the Albion Central School Board of Education.

Sincerely yours,

Gary F. Kent
