Letter: Rupert right for RFSD board

I urge Roaring Fork School District voters to support Jen Rupert for school board in the upcoming mail-in ballot election. Rupert is everything we need and more; she is well-positioned in the community to foster connections, she cares about the outcomes for all students and sees our rich diversity as an asset, she has a child in our public schools, she has the time to commit, and she is a proponent of the district’s strategic plan.

Though we have qualified candidates running for election this year, I feel strongly we need more women on a school board that has traditionally lacked this representation. Not only are the majority of RFSD parent volunteers women, but the vast majority of staff is as well. Let’s have a more balanced representation at the school board level.

Don’t forget all voters in the Roaring Fork School District vote for all school board seats. This is a mail-in ballot only election and ballots must be received by Nov. 3. Please join me in voting for Jen Rupert.
