James – thank you for your dedication and service to our schools. While our children have moved on to higher education at the college level it was the schools that brought us to this area. We recognize how important a well support school system is to the health of a state. It is great schools that will attract businesses and quality employees to our state. It is great schools that will propel our youth to work on the myriads of issues our country will face. We need strong pro-education advocates like you at every level. It is critical that we have your experience, expertise, and passion leading us as State Superintendent.
