Worthy D-26 candidates

To the Editor:

The Cary School District 26 community has been through a lot over the past eight years: decimated finances, a threatened state takeover, program cuts, large class sizes and more. Finally, after three consecutive balanced budgets, we are now turning the corner.

To continue on this path, I ask that you vote for Josh Howell, Christopher Christensen, Floyd Myers and Julie Jette on April 9. Current board members Myers and Jette will continue guiding the district back while maintaining balanced budgets. I’ve personally worked with Christensen and Howell on several school board committees. Together, they bring a welcome mix of knowledge and skills in technology and communication.  They are also committed to balanced budgets.

I’m optimistic about the future of District 26 and know Josh Howell, Chris Christensen, Floyd Myers and Julie Jette are best suited to lead the district forward.
