Not just talk

Dear Editor:

I am writing in support of Tim Taylor for school board in the upcoming election. As a Destination Imagination coach of Tim’s daughter, Celia, I had the pleasure to get to know Tim and Gwen a few years ago. We worked together to help raise $10,000 to send the team to Global Finals twice and Tim was always involved and supportive. He not only provided supplies and attended all fund-raisers, but he also made it a point to purchase items from all the DI teams as well as other student fund-raisers.

Additionally, Tim co-founded the Foundation for Archuleta County Education (FACE), has served on the elementary and middle school Student Accountability Committees (SAC) for more than five years, and has attended school board meetings for the past 4.5 years. This shows his dedication and commitment to get involved in order to improve the schools in Archuleta County. He doesn’t just talk about change … he rolls up his sleeves to get things done.
