Kat runs for the Madison County School Board
Originally posted 5-16-2011
It's time to get out the vote. Tomorrow is one of the most important school board elections in recent history. Two seats are being contested for the board in our school district.
The passage of State Supt. Tom Luna's "Students Come First" proposals by the state legislature pose extreme challenges to school districts across the state. This is therefore the time to elect people who are passionate about finding ways to maintain the high quality of education for which our district is known, and who also have the capacity to make that happen.
Kathrine Holyoak is an absolutely top-notch candidate for the board. She is running for the seat in Zone 1.
She has energy and passion for supporting quality education and educators. She is well-informed about challenges facing the board that stem from the "Students Come First" legislation, and is ready to take on the work needed to build and maintain positive working relationships between the board and our district's educators. Kathrine is a long-term advocate of public education, and she currently serves as a member of the Madison Education Foundation.
I am also very impressed by Dianne Eaton. She is running for the seat in Zone 4.
She is also well-informed and brings important skills and abilities to the table. She is also a strong candidate whose addition to the board would bring greate benefits to the board.
Pass the word! Get out and vote. It's never been more important to have a say about who will serve on our school board. This is a critical time for education in Idaho.
Vote on May 17th between 8am and 8pm at your designated polling stations.
