School elections: Vote for schools, for Shelly Wills

April 30, 2010 7:51 am

The Missoula community has an important choice to make with the mail-in ballot for Missoula County Public Schools elementary schools. First of all, the teachers in Missoula are urging voters to support the elementary schools by voting for the MCPS Levy. The increase is very minimal, but would help our schools a great deal with basics like supplies, books and improved heating budgets, among other essentials.

Many people in the community may not know that the Missoula Education Association, the group representing almost 700 teachers in MCPS, is supporting Shelly Wills in the contested race for a spot on the school board. Wills has been engaged in many Missoula activities for many years. She has children in our schools currently, and she has a proven track record of service right here in our town. Wills was also appointed to the board earlier this year and always attends board meetings, asks great questions, and works hard to do what is right for students and teachers in our schools. It is great to have her on the board.

Please vote for our children by voting yes on the levy, voting for Shelly Wills, and mailing your ballot early so it arrives in the elections office by May 4.

David A. Severson, Missoula Education Association president, Missoula
