Please join me in supporting Barbara Thurston for the Juneau school board. While we are fortunate to have three excellent candidates running, I truly believe the election of Thurston would be tremendous asset for our community. She will serve Juneau with integrity, intelligence, a commitment to equity and academic excellence and an ability to listen well and dissect data.
Barbara has long standing commitment to Juneau's children. I have no doubts she will serve tirelessly to make Juneau School District both equitable and excellent.
I have worked with Barbara on various issues and she is able to understand large amounts of data, hear all sides of an argument and come to consensus.
Barbara is an actuary and she understands numbers. What a gift to have someone on the school board who can interpret test scores, budgets and the other pages of numbers that are generated in our school district.
My vote on Oct. 5 will be for Thurston for school board. I hope you will join me in supporting her.
