Dear Editor:

There are currently two seats up for the Archuleta County School District Board. Tim Taylor is running to retain the District 1 seat he was appointed to in 2012. Tim is a very well educated entrepreneur that has worked hard to become knowledgeable about the educational issues surrounding our district and the Colorado Department of Education.

Tim’s involvement with our local educational system speaks for itself. Tim has attended school board meetings for over four years, 16 months as a board member. Tim has served on the Elementary School Accountability Committee (SAC) for five years and the Middle School SAC for almost two years. Tim has served on the Colorado Preschool Program District Council for four years and he co-founded the Foundation for Archuleta County Education in 2011.

Tim’s educational strength in the Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is a huge asset to our community. His success in business shows that he understands how to communicate with his clients and deliver.

A vote for Tim will mean continued focus on providing our children with an excellent education.

Patrick O’Brien
