Letter to the editor: Congrats on School Board victory, and thanks for support

I want to congratulate Heather Hirsch on her win for a two-year seat on the District 833 School Board.

I want to thank all those who supported me in my campaign that came up just short.

I hope that the new members of the school board will consider some of the issues that I raised in the campaign, most importantly, the need to take more seriously the growing problem of chronically disruptive behavior and the very troubling effects this is having in our classrooms.

Further, I think the school board needs to seriously consider the impact of continual property tax increases has on those of lower income and/or retired folks living on fixed incomes, and who are struggling to get by.
