To the editor:
I am writing to endorse Dale Perry for school board.
Dale transcends the political spectrum, and will represent all of us. Indeed, a simplistic political label does not apply to Dale, which is as it should be because our school district is no place for partisan politics. Dale understands that assuring a quality education for all our children is the paramount goal of our school board.
As someone who has spent my career representing disadvantaged people, I have found Dale's compassion for all people particularly striking. He will be there for all of us, and will fight to ensure that all children have equal access to all opportunities our district offers.
A Navy veteran and international businessman, Dale will bring many talents and experiences to our school board. He has outlined his philosophy, goals, and strategies for achieving those goals on his web site, www.perryforschoolboard.org. He has also cut his work schedule in half, intending to devote the additional time to our children. We will not find someone with a greater commitment to our children.
Please give Dale the opportunity to represent all of us, and to help bring excellence and fairness to our school district.
