To the editor:

I am writing to encourage District 194 residents to vote Zach Duckworth for Lakeville School Board. I’ve come to know this young man as an honest and excellent communicator who will foster a respectful dialogue regarding the future of our schools.

I asked Zach why he was running and with conviction in his eyes he answered that it was for the kids of our community. He is passionate about serving Lakeville and our children and grandchildren by fighting for stellar education, athletic, extracurricular, and life-skills programs, keeping them safe and helping students find their passion as they consider life career opportunities. I also discovered Zach is committed to ensuring the financial resources of the district are managed the same as we all do within our personal lives at home. I am also encouraged to know that Zach is committed to increasing community involvement and prioritize student success.

His service as an infantry officer in the Minnesota Army National Guard and role as a volunteer firefighter in Lakeville prove that Zach has a servant heart and that he’s running for the right reasons. Zach will keep our kids and their futures at the forefront of every decision the district makes.
