One more Van Voorhees supporter

To the editor: I’m writing this letter to support Kate Van Voorhees for re-election in the March 13 election for Central Oregon Community College board. I have known Kate since she came to Prineville in 1979. She has been our representative on the Central Oregon Community College Board since 1988. During that time she has been chairman of the Central Oregon Community College Board twice. She was President of the Oregon Community College Association last year. She currently serves the Oregon Community College Association as chair of their legislative committee. Last year she was chosen as one of the fifty most important people in Central Oregon Community College’s history in their golden anniversary. She has no conflicts with representing us on the Central Oregon Community College Board. Her opponent would have conflicts as a member of the school board. She spends a lot of time representing us. She has an ongoing mission to increase access for Prineville residents to Central Oregon Community College. Although she has served on the Central Oregon College Board for a long time, she remains dedicated and enthusiastic about representing our needs both in working with the new University Branch and in creating stable funding for our Community College. When you receive your ballot for the March election, please vote for her re-election. Gail Merritt Prineville
