Letter to the editor: Kids, not politics, must come first


As a mom of four kids in Douglas County schools, I know that it is time to put kids, not politics, first. It is time to elect school board members who will make decisions that benefit students, teachers, and taxpayers alike.

My children range from preschool to eighth grade. My oldest three children attend a Castle Rock charter school. We have a lot of public choice in this district - open enrollment into neighborhood schools, charters, magnets, online and alternative schools, and homeschool programs. Now we need smart management of all of the choices, good decisions about growth and capital improvements, and a school board that will encourage the community's support of a high-quality education for all of our county's children.  

School Board candidates Anthony Graziano, Krista Holtzmann, Kevin Leung and Chris Schor will put our kids, and therefore the future well-being of our community, first. They will work to create a district that retains, and even better, attracts teachers again. Please become informed and vote for the best candidates for our kids and community.  This mom of four is voting for Graziano, Holtzmann, Leung and Schor!
