Letter: Duchscher works hard for school district

To the editor,

I am writing in support of Rob Duchscher for the ISD 196 school board. Having served on the board for the last 11-plus years, including chair for three years, Rob has helped guide our district through some difficult financial constraints and help make the most out of the dollars we get from the state and our community. This effort has led to sound strategic planning, financial reporting and fiscal stability, allowing our district to provide every student an education that allows them to reach their full potential.

Through dedication and endless energy, Rob has used his real-life business skills to ensure our district provides a solid educational foundation, with an emphasis on curriculum excellence. As a result, ISD 196 is able to put its money into the classroom, where it belongs.

Rob has always been a vocal supporter of public education. He volunteers at numerous school activities, listens to his constituents and responds to emails or phone calls, even when someone disagrees with a particular position.

One other point, Rob represents the entire District. No matter what part of the District you are from, Rob has been there for all of our communities.

As a supporter of core academics and secondary language training, in a fiscally prudent manner, please join me in supporting Rob Duchscher on Nov. 8.

Jason Messner,
