I am pleased to recommend the re-election of Mike Ptacek to the District 834 School Board.
In his first term, he has diligently attended meetings and made it a priority to listen to his constituents. He took to heart the message in the previous defeat of the school levy request; he has concentrated on resolving the resulting budget challenge and again, is listening to his constituents. His experience in promoting science, technology, engineering, and math will serve the district and its students well as the board begins a new round of strategic planning.
Having known him for eight years and observed his work as a board member for the last four, I’m confident in recommending his candidacy to you.
