Candidates for District 12 School Board Kathy Plomer and Amy Speers see education as I do.
My children and now grandchildren attend(ed) District 12 schools. Children need experience with arts, music, painting and physical education. I have always believed anyone with a calculator can do math.
Our children need guidance in literature, English grammar, spelling and computer science. These two women would be wonderful school board members guiding our children in their quest for excellence in learning.

Imagine having your pay reduced by 2 percent and having to pay 2 percent of the company’s contribution to your retirement plan. Then imagine learning that your company has millions of dollars in reserves! Like me, you’d be angry – and demoralized.
This happened to employees of Adams 12 schools a year ago. As a 40-year resident, taxpayer, and former parent/employee of the district, this situation is unacceptable. We know the relationship between good schools, good teachers, and our homes’ value. We know that high quality schools attract businesses and jobs to our community.
The atmosphere of anger and mistrust between the Adams 12 Board members and employees must change. We must elect Board members who promote community-school partnerships and care about quality education.
Kathy Plomer and Amy Speers believe in fostering, rather than destroying, strong relationships between schools and the community. Support Kathy Plomer and Amy Speers for the Adams 12 Board of Education.
