Letter to the editor: Time to restore faith in district


My name is Andy Watkins, and I am a teacher in the Douglas County School District. I am writing this letter as a 17-year district veteran and a parent of a high school student also in the district to express my strong support for Krista Holtzmann, Anthony Graziano, Kevin Leung and Chris Schor, who are running in the Douglas County School Board election this fall.

I have seen the devastation that current and past "Elevate" board members have caused throughout the past eight years. I personally have witnessed the exodus of highly qualified teachers who have joined other districts for higher pay and honestly, more respect from top school board members and their "reformer" administration. I have also seen how the exodus has severely affected my students and even my own child.

This year's election is critical. By voting for Krista Holtzmann, Anthony Graziano, Kevin Leung and Chris Schor, you will be voting for students, respect for teachers, and faith in the value of a public, local education.
