This letter originally appeared in the Statesman Journal.

Kathy Goss is the most capable candidate for the Salem-Keizer School Board, Zone 1.

I have known Kathy for several years and feel she has the best background and experience to help manage the multimillion-dollar budget of the Salem-Keizer School District. Kathy has a Doctorate in Education Administration and worked as an administrator. Along with her experience as a teacher, I believe this makes her the most valuable of the candidates running.

Why should we not elect the best? Vote for Kathy Goss for Zone 1.
