To the editor:
I am voting for Valerie Neidert for Amherst school board because she is experienced and invested in our schools’ success.
I grew up in Amherst and am raising my family here. With four young children at home, two of which are Amherst students, it means a lot to me and my family that Valerie is so dedicated to our community’s future. Valerie has eight years of school board experience and countless PTO volunteer hours under her belt. In that time, she proved her ability to talk to citizens, listen to their concerns, and take action. Though her own children have graduated, today she serves as the treasurer for the Amherst Athletic Boosters and the levy committee, where she helped us pass a bond issue for a new school and maintain our operating funds. Those issues ensured future Amherst students like my kids would have access to the great programs and resources Amherst students have today.
It’s easy to care about students, but it’s not easy to invest so much of your personal time to support them. Please vote for Valerie Neidert for Amherst school board on Nov. 7.
