Letter to the editor
A vote for Weaver

April 13, 2011

Dear Editor,

I have analyzed what type of leadership is best for the District and its students.  I 've read and heard all of the political rhetoric.  Some people focus on the bond as the sole issue they will use to determine how they will cast their vote.  Other people will only vote for a candidate based upon the candidate’s political affiliation (even though this is a non-partisan election).

I will vote for Kelly Weaver for Trustee.  Why?  I don’t want to look at only the activities of a candidate in the three months leading up to the election.  Instead , if you want to know what a candidate truly stands for, look at their track record over a period of years.  Kelly Weaver has been 100% dedicated to the students of Lake Orion Schools for years.  She has been an educator in our district and the President of the Lake Orion Education Foundation (LOEF).  LOEF’s sole purpose is to raise funds for the benefit of the students attending Lake Orion Community Schools.  It is also important to me our School Board have children in our district currently or in recent years.  Decisions our Board makes need to be focused on what is best for our children, not what is best for a union or a political agenda.

Kelly is also the Founding President of the Lake Orion Area Optimist Club another organization that is devoted to the students of our schools.  Finally she currently serves as a Trustee on the Board of Education.  I have not seen that type of dedication from any other candidate.
