Letter: Endorsement for Deborah Grant

By on March 31, 2011

Please vote for Deborah Grant to represent residents of the Kaneland School District 302.

Deborah is highly qualified in many ways, including her expiring term on the board. She has demonstrated her abilities to cautiously debate issues of importance to all taxpayers.

Deborah is highly educated, holding, at least a Masters Degree, which becomes evident in her mannerisms, demeanor and professionalism. I have attended many board meetings (probably more than most candidates currently running for office) to observe the board in action. Such attendance allows me to more fully represent the residents of the district with my membership on the Citizens Advisory Committee.

It also, in my opinion, allows me to endorse one who I believe will continue to represent all of the community. She has stated the proper education of the students is not all about test scores but more importantly about their preparation for the future.

I have had the pleasure of working with Deborah on a project in our community. She writes very well, is articulate and extremely professional. She assisted me with a fundraiser to the betterment of the community without demanding any recognition. What more can one ask for as a continuing member of the Board of Education for Kaneland School District 302?

Please vote for Deborah on April 5. Thank you.

H. Jack Hansen

    I did not find Ms. Grants answers to the questions in yesterday’s issue. That is too bad because I wanted the opportunity to compare all the candidates. I hope she is not feeling complacent and felt she did not need to provided answers to the questions?

    I was disappointed to see that she didn’t participate but who knows what the timeline for submitting answers was or if she had other commitments or was on vacation. Based on the Middle School forum and what I know of her participation on the board, I am, however supporting her as a continuing board member.
