44th District


Wilson's blend of skills needed

Despite being a newcomer to state politics, Mike Wilson's strong showing in the August primary election did not surprise me. Prior to my retirement, I worked with Mike for many years at Cascade High School and know him to be a dedicated professional. He fosters an awareness of civic responsibility in his government classes by inviting candidates and other experts in to talk with his students. He encourages his students to be active in the democratic process; so it is no surprise to me to see so many of his former students engaged in his current campaign for state representative in the 44th Legislative District.
During his many years of coaching experience, Mike learned how to motivate student athletes and to instill confidence in them. Most important, he knows how to work with parents in a collegial way to enlist their aid in serving students' needs. This ability to work with diverse groups of students, parents, peers and administrators has made him a successful educator and is definitely what is needed in our Legislature.
