I endorse Kim Guymon and Rod Reynolds for the Everett School District Board. These people are dedicated to the study of education methods. They have researched governance of school districts, and have solid ideas to bring to our district. They show support for the good programs our district has in place, and never express a desire to cause destruction, rather are very supportive.
They are not part of the business community of Everett. They are people who would not "yes up" to anyone in administration, they would examine proposals carefully.
Andrews supported the construction of an administration building, for which, we the voters, did not vote. Funding for this building was manipulative. I would have voted for upgraded classrooms, in fact, I did, but my vote was used otherwise.
Mr. Wenta is an employee of the YMCA. Dr. Cohn, our Superintendent, serves on the board of the Y, providing oversight to Mr. Wenta. Mr. Wenta, if elected would then provide oversight to Dr. Cohn. Given history and given the situation, there exists a not clean and wholesome relationship issue. This is a conflict of interest, and it just is not good business practice.
I am low-income working parent, who has raised five kids in this district. I have not owned a family business for a 100 years. Just a commoner. I want board members who care about parents like me, Not prestige, but our kids and the working class, struggling folks.
