EDITOR:

I have known Mary Muse and Lori Veerkamp for many years and had the privilege of serving with them on the El Dorado Union High School District Board of Trustees.

Mary and Lori are deeply committed to educating all students in a safe environment and providing them a rigorous curriculum and excellent career technology programs.

Some of the noteworthy accomplishments of the high school district during their board tenure include the passage of Measure Q, a balanced district budget, and a district California High School Exit Exam passage rate of 91 percent.

Mary Muse and Lori Veerkamp are dedicated to our youth and are competent, experienced trustees. Their leadership is necessary to meet upcoming challenges facing public schools. Please join me in voting to re-elect Mary Muse and Lori Veerkamp to the El Dorado Union High School District Board of Trustees.

    If anyone has gone before the EDHUD Board than one would know that this comment is so incorrect. Safety issues have been brought to board over Ponderosa Head footbal coach for 4 years (YES 4 MISERABLE YEARs) and their answer - move. Parent and kids's complaints are ignored and have resulted in many children leaving. They do nothing except nod their head to the President. Elect someone who actually STANDS UP for our kids !!!! Oh and isn't the School Board being sued over this man too - The one they protect.
