I support the candidacy of Hallie Kelly Star for the Zone 1 school board election. I encourage voters to examine her skill set as a development director, management communications officer, former teacher, and mother of thee school-age children.
Her current employment at the Lee Pesky Learning Center has allowed her a unique opportunity to assemble the knowledge and talents required of a school board trustee. Upon careful consideration, I believe that her experience clearly indicates that she is the more qualified of the two candidates.
Hallie will stand up for our students and teachers. She commits to being accessible to all, especially concerned parents. Hallie understands the economic engine that the school district is as Blaine County's largest employer and tax dollar recipient. She also understands that it must operate in a fiscally responsible manner.
I ask that voters look beyond the fact that traditionally this seat is held by a citizen of Carey. Hallie will serve the entire county well. With all due respect to Shawn Bennion, and many thanks to him for being willing to serve, the clear and best choice of candidate for this seat is Hallie Kelly Star.
