To the Editor:
Of the many talented candidates for St. Louis Park School Board, my votes will go to these four candidates: Ken Morrison, Laura McClendon, Heather Wilsey and C. Colin Cox.
Ken is an incumbent who is insightful, caring and brings a perspective that helps the school board do a better job. He is the father of two Park grads and a current St. Louis Park High School student. Laura is a 1998 Park grad, 30-year resident of St. Louis Park, has a master’s in chemical and life science and is a middle school science teacher in another district. Laura will help enhance rigorous, inclusive 21st-century education for all our students. Heather Wilsey has a Master of Education degree, teaches elementary students in another district, is the mother of two St. Louis Park students, served in the Peace Corps and has a deep understanding of equity work to bring to the school board. C. Colin Cox has served the district as co-chair of the Vote Yes Committee and as a member of the Learning Design Team for our facility updates. His son attended Aquila and is currently a St. Louis Park Middle School student. I invite your thoughtful consideration of these candidates as you cast your vote Tuesday, Nov. 5. The top four vote-getters will be elected to the St. Louis Park School Board.
