The Dalles Nelson for schools
To the editor:
I wholeheartedly recommend John Nelson for school board.
An effective school board member personifies several qualities: awareness of the social and political factors that affect our local schools, perseverance to guide projects that require time to mature, and clear judgement.
Over the years, I have observed John Nelson work on several different councils and committees in The Dalles and attest that he has these characteristics.
Although the school board by itself cannot resolve all the problems facing our schools, John has the experience and skills that our school board needs to perform its key role.
