If ever a situation cried out for new leaders, the Altoona Area School District board is that case. Happily, in the upcoming election, we have just the right choices.
Judy Berryman and Jesse Ickes have the expertise and experience to uphold the mandate of the Pennsylvania Constitution for a "thorough and efficient system of public education."
They are committed to moving AASD towards excellence, while not bankrupting taxpayers. It will be a very difficult job, but I know firsthand that these two citizens have the character, intelligence, and dedication to make it happen.
Berryman and Ickes, thorough and efficient. That's who and what we all should want on Altoona's school board. They deserve our votes on May 21.
