Dear Editor:

We are writing to endorse the candidacy of Bruce Dryburgh and Brooks Lindner for school board. Bruce and Brooks have different but equally valuable backgrounds and skills that would add depth to our school board. Dryburgh has extensive experience in business and law while Lindner has many years experience in both public and private education. Both men have been active participants in volunteer activities related to Archuleta County schools.

We believe Bruce and Brooks will bring a new perspective to the school board with an emphasis on increasing student achievement and academic excellence. Our students deserve an education that will prepare them for whatever path they may choose to follow, whether it be college, advanced vocational training or direct entry into the workplace.

Please join us in marking your mail-in ballot for Bruce Dryburgh and Brooks Lindner, candidates for school board.

Bob and Jan Clinkenbeard
