Dear Editor:

I would like to express my endorsement of a long-time friend and vet, Dr. Dwight Hooton, in his bid for election to the school board. Dwight has many ideas to bring to the table and one interesting attribute that distinguishes him: he is a great listener.

I think his thoughtful approach, his own ideas and his listening to others make him an ideal candidate to serve on the school board. I live in Pagosa Springs during the summer months and Scottsdale, Ariz., during the winter months. I am committed to both communities and would like to see Pagosa Springs thrive. Please elect Dwight Hooton.

Lynn Kelley
