Vote Les in District 47

Published: Tuesday, March 26, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

It is a rare privilege for those of us in District 47 to support a candidate with the background and credentials of Dr. Betsy Les.

With uncompromising character and integrity, she has served our community as an elementary school teacher, and for the past 20 years as an elementary school principal. Her expertise in the complex issues facing our schools on a daily basis will complement the strengths of the current board, while her understanding of policy and the fiscal responsibility she has shown as an experienced administrator will prove vital to her success as a leader and an advocate for the taxpayers.

Our children deserve the stewardship that a community and academic leader like Betsy will bring to this role. Please join me in support of Dr. Betsy Les for School District 47 Board of Trustees on April 9.
