Letter: Brinkmeier understands school board job

Published: Friday, April 5, 2013 3:46 p.m. CDT

To the Editor: I believe District 205 needs another proven leader on its board, and that leader is Alan J. Brinkmeier.

We no longer want someone who has no experience or understanding of our community. School Board members are one of the most important community positions. The decisions that they make not only affect students, but also school district employees and residents on a daily basis.

I believe Alan is the best candidate for a board position because he understands all aspects of this job. When acting as a School Board member, one must start with the understanding that every student has the basic right to a great public school education and put those interests first before their own. I believe Alan fully embraces this understanding and will always strive to achieve the highest standards for our students, our community and our district employees.

I fully support the election of Alan J. Brinkmeier to the District 205 School Board.
