Reilly for School Board

Ideas and opinions in this letter are those of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the stance of this paper. The author of this letter has paid for its placement. As a resident of Alexandria and former employee of District 206, I offer my full endorsement of Shawn Reilly as an important voice and member on the Alexandria School Board. Shawn appreciates everything the community has to offer and is actively engaged to make it better. As a former teacher, current business owner, parent, and volunteer he will be a great asset to the school board.

Shawn’s experience as a teacher will help in his understanding of the working environment of District 206 teachers and employees. I have worked with Shawn over the past few years and he is a professional in his career and personal life. Shawn is an ethical person and has a strong sense of responsibility and loyalty to his family and community. He has the business experience to make tough and thoughtful decisions and has a cordial temperament which helps when working with a team of board members. As a parent and volunteer with the district he will be a big asset as he cares about the district’s future and what it means for the next generation.
