Valdes a clear choice

I recently met a candidate for the Hart School Board named Linda Valdes. Wow. What a breath of fresh air.

She is everything parents in our valley could want in a school board member.

Valdes stands up for the kids. A lot of candidates say they do, but she's spent 12 years in a classroom so she kind of has an edge on the others.

She's also been out there working for them on her own time.

When they said they wanted less crowding, she chaired the campaign to raise $300 million for a new high school. During a recession. That takes some moxie.

Valdes has led some great events and organizations in our valley through the years and here's what she's learned from the experience - to listen.

She listens to kids, she listens to their parents, and it's evident she's great at acting on what she hears.

Finally, Valdes comes to the race with a level of energy and passion that you rarely see these days.

Whoever you vote for on Nov. 3, make sure you fill one of your bubbles for Linda Valdes. The Hart board couldn't have a better member.
