Letters to the Editor

Letter: West Ada election

This letter is to ask for your vote and support for Anne Ritter, trustee candidate for Zone 4 of the West Ada School District. I have had the privilege to work with Ms. Ritter in several education forums, including the National and Idaho School Boards Association, where she has served in a variety of leadership positions. She is an active leader and advocate for improving education in West Ada and Idaho through tireless efforts at the local, state and national levels.

Anne has worked to increase teacher support by serving on the Governor’s Education Task Force, providing input and direction that has led to the development of such legislation as the newly introduced Career Ladder that raises teacher salaries. She supports professional development for staff and regularly lobbies legislators for state financial investment. Anne is an outspoken proponent for local governance and control, keeping state funds available to the district where they can be used in the most beneficial manner deemed necessary by the local board of trustees.

Anne Ritter is a friend, advocate and supporter of students, parents and staff of the West Ada School District and districts statewide, and deserves your vote on Tuesday .

Todd Wells, Castleford
