Dear Editor:

Election Day. There is an election next month and anyone who cares about the education of our children needs to vote.

It will be a mail ballot vote only. Ballots will be in your mailboxes sometime the week of Oct. 20 and need to be completed and mailed (or dropped at the county courthouse) before Election Day, Nov. 5.

The school board has two seats up for election. Two candidates are running for each seat. A great addition to this school board would be candidates that are independent thinkers, have an inquiring presence, and believe that this district can do better for our students.

We are strongly supporting Bruce Dryburgh and Brooks Lindner in this election.

Bruce has immense corporate background, has been involved in this school district for several years and has attended countless school board meetings. We believe Bruce will ask investigative questions and bring more comprehensive dialogue to this board.

Brooks is an educator and understands delivering to the customer. He and his wife have developed an outstanding educational model in their business, Sonrisas Spanish School. His collaborative and progressive mindset will be a great addition to the school board.

Both gentlemen are knowledgeable about strategic planning and will assist in creating a meaningful plan that focuses on students and excellence in education.

Please vote. The kids of Archuleta County need Bruce and Brooks … the 2 Bs!

Bob and Lisa Scott
