This is a letter in support of Heidi Kendall for the Missoula County Public Schools board.
I’ve known Kendall since she and a few other devoted moms showed up at Families First when I was the executive director in 2001. Kendall and the other moms were gently persistent in their goal to start a Children’s Museum in Missoula. They wanted a place for parents to connect and for children to play – especially during the long, dark Missoula winters. Kendall and these other moms had immediate and lasting impact. Now, 15 years later, we have a fabulous Children’s Museum in Missoula.
Throughout this time, Kendall has been a fantastic advocate for what’s best for children and families. And to top it off, she has always been positive and constructive in her interpersonal style. Kendall also served on the City Council from 2004 to 2007.
Kendall simply gets the job done and always does so in a pleasant and positive manner. I hope you will vote for her because our children, our teachers, and our school administrators will be well-served by Kendall.
John Sommers-Flanagan, Missoula
