These are challenging days for all our schools in Pennsylvania.
The future success of our children faces an increasingly competitive global economy and decreasing fiscal resources.
On Election Day, I'm voting for Judy Berryman for the Altoona Area School Board.
She understands both the imperative of sound educational policy and the financial realities besetting taxpayers.
Most important, she will fight for local control of our schools, where children come first. She brings knowledge, experience, and virtue to a job that will need much of all three.
I have come to know Ms. Berryman very well the past few years.
She has a passion for educational excellence and the common sense to deal with fiscal reality. My vote for AASD board will proudly be cast for Judy Berryman.
