I support Kathy Goss for the open Zone 1 position on the Salem-Keizer School Board.

Kathy is an experienced community leader who brings both inspiration and common sense to issues. Kathy has a passion for child education that is reflected in her own work and community involvement. Kathy has experience in the classroom and as an administrator; she will be able to make an immediate impact on the school board.

If you think that educational experience and common sense are important qualities on our school board, please join me in supporting Kathy Goss.
