Letter: To know Jen is to love Jen

I write today on behalf of RFSD candidate Jennifer Rupert. My family has known Jen for many years. We have worked together at the Aspen Skiing Company for almost two decades. I have been teammates with Jen, representing ASC and Team Diva at the World Synchro Skiing Competitions. She has taught all three of our children at Rocky Mountain Martial Arts. I watch her tirelessly advocate and fundraise for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, as she moves through her own path with this disease with strength and grace.

I share all of this to establish my relationship with Jen. What I would really like all of you to hear today is this: To know Jen is to love Jen. She holds a passion, a vigor for life. That passion leads her to be action-oriented in all that she does. She is a proven leader, a strong teammate, and a conscientious administrator. Her humility and constant attention to how her choices affect other people are a tribute to her compassion and heart.

This is who we want advocating for our community, our teachers and our children.

Atencion, por favor únase a nosotros en apoyo de Jennifer Rupert para Consejo Escolar. Ella cree en la igualdad. Ella y su familia trabajan duro para vivir y permanecer en este valle. Ella también trabajará fuertamente para nuestros hijos. No olvides votar. Ahora es demasiado tarde para enviar por correo su boleta. Por favor deje en la oficina del secretario del condado.

Thank you for your time. I hope that you will join me in supporting Jen Rupert for RFSD. If you have not yet voted, please drop your completed ballot at your county clerk office as it is now too late to mail it in.
