Letter: Slate is the right choice


In 2017, the usually ho-hum school board election is grabbing national attention. The Elevate Douglas County candidates Randy, Ryan, Debora and Grant are running to sustain educational excellence for Douglas County children.

Randy Mills, an entrepreneur and electrician, provides an energized focus on vocational training. Ryan Abresch, a former deputy district attorney and father of a first-grader, will safeguard parental options for children's education. Debora Scheffel graduated from DU with a master's degree in special education, taught in Douglas County, served on the Colorado State Board of Education and is the current dean of Colorado Christian University's School of Education. CU Buff and entrepreneur Grant Nelson, a real estate business owner, brings years of business experience to the board. His three children attend Douglas County schools.

Vote for Randy, Ryan, Debora and Grant for a positive impact on the Douglas County School Board with stability, respect and value.
