An endorsement for Butler for school board

I would like to endorse Alice Dorman Butler for Greater Clark County School Board District 6.

Ms. Butler has worked for our company as controller for the past 21 years and has been a true asset in her position. As controller, her job is critical to the success of our company and we depend on her daily to handle the payroll, accounting and the overall finances of the dealership. This is a position where integrity, accountability and intelligence are crucial in getting the job done.

I feel Ms. Butler will bring this same expertise to the school board of Greater Clark along with a genuine desire to improve the education for all children in the Southern Indiana area. She has always had a passion for education and knows firsthand the importance of receiving a great education in today’s competitive environment. She has no ulterior motive to serve on the board except doing all she can for the betterment of the students’ education in Clark County.

If she is voted in Nov. 6, I can guarantee you will be getting a top-notch board member you can count on just like I have for over the past 20 years.

Candidate’s husband offers correction to previous letter

In an attempt to keep information accurate, a letter to the editor published Oct. 9 titled “Reader urges a school board change,” where there was a mention of possible conflict of interest with the building trade students and current Greater Clark County Schools member Ernie Gilbert, the only descending vote was cast by Becka Christensen, not Nancy Kraft.

While the students in this great program need projects to work on, with all the homes in Clark County destroyed in the recent tornados, Becka felt there could have been a better choice for a project than a board member’s family property.

She would not vote to approve anything that could be a possible conflict of interest with a board member and anyone who has followed her voting record knows this. As for the rest of the letter, the voting public should take a good look at the information contained in it before casting their ballot on election day.

Thanks for giving me the time to set the record straight on this very important matter.

— Dan Christensen, Jeffersonville

Editor’s note: Dan Christensen is the husband of Becka Christensen, Greater Clark County Schools Board candidate.
