> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Writer urges support for Christensen

This year it is critical that we decide whether we want public servants or politicians to serve on the GCCS School Board of Trustees. Four positions are up for election, and while candidates must live in their district, all voters will have a vote for each of those four positions. Incumbent Becka Christensen is a public servant who has proven her dedication and passion for this community.

Becka worked hard to keep Corden Porter and Maple Elementary schools open for the business of educating our children. Becka voted “No” every time job outsourcing came up. She worked hard to save the auto tech program in Charlestown, and supported all the change orders during the construction phases of both Charlestown and New Washington schools. She continues to oppose wasteful spending and reductions to student resources. She listens to her constituents and responds to their concerns and questions. She stands firm on what she believes.

Currently she’s hard at work trying to save the Pilot House project that she has spent several years working on. Becka Christensen is not afraid of hard work and doing good deeds. Just ask those of us that patrol the “pill mill” every morning and afternoon they’re in operation with Becka Christensen sitting right there with us.

We need a thoughtful, truthful person to parse through the business of the board and come to an unbiased conclusion that best represents the children, parents, teachers and faculty of Greater Clark. Our children deserve someone in their corner willing to fight for them. Public servant or politician? You get to decide on Nov. 6. Please vote for Becka Christensen.
