To the Editor:
I have a direct and very personal stake in the outcome of the St. Louis Park School Board elections even though I am not a resident. This election is about building the best community for my kids and securing the best education for my grandchildren. All three of our adults kids are homeowners in St. Louis Park. Our one granddaughter (and, we hope, more to come!) will one day be a St. Louis Park student, so I feel deeply invested in maintaining and enhancing the quality of schools in St. Louis Park. Over the past two decades, I have had the opportunity to work directly with Colin Cox in a variety of roles and to see him in action as a parent, in the community and in his professional life. What I know about Colin is that he is a respectful person, one who listens to all and a person passionate about the quality of education. He is smart, hard-working and thoughtful. That’s exactly the kind of person we need on school boards (and in all public offices). I am proud to endorse Colin Cox for the St. Louis Park School Board.
