To the Editor:
I am writing this letter in support of Dr. Barry Albertson in his re-election bid to the Tigard-Tualatin School Board Position 1.
I have known Barry for over a decade and spent many hours observing him at board meetings and discussing with him issues critical to the operation of the school district.
Barry is a critical thinker. At board meetings he asks the critical questions that test the logic and assumptions used to drive district policies and procedures. He asks the "what if" questions that strengthen the educational foundation of the district.
Barry can often be found at schools throughout the district talking with administrators and teachers. He meets with student groups and also teaches individual classes from elementary to high school. He is also a supporter of extra-circular activities like the arts, music and athletics that add polish to the K-12 education of students.
Making time to engage parents and the community to listen to their suggestions and concerns is very important to him.
Please vote to return Dr. Barry Albertson to Position 1 on the Tigard-Tualatin School Board in the upcoming May election.
Dewey R. Hamilton
