ELECTION: Drew Ritzen for Fife School Board

Drew Ritzen is the most qualified candidate for Fife School Board director, District 2.

As a 15-year teaching veteran, he has a deep understanding of the complex challenges facing today’s students and schools.

Ritzen exemplifies integrity, responsibility and accountability. When there are important decisions to be made, he will neither violate the voter’s trust or state open meeting laws by consenting to closed meetings and ignoring community input. Instead, he will work diligently on open lines of communication, open meetings and on keeping an open mind.

It’s time we elected an educator to the Fife School Board. It’s time we elected someone with firsthand knowledge of the challenges facing our diverse student population. It’s time we elected a board member willing to govern with transparency and respect for community input.
