As the proud father of two recent Jeffco Schools graduates, I am a strong champion for our public schools. As test scores plummet, the budget deficit grows larger, and thousands of students opt out of our district schools each year, we need strong leadership and problem-solving experience on our school board. That is why I am voting for Dr. Thomas Wicke.

Dr. Wicke is a proven leader with a history of revitalizing failing

institutions and struggling communities. He’s the president of a now thriving college here in Colorado, but his reputation as a problem solver goes far beyond our state. The Department of Homeland Security brought him in to work on disaster recovery after Hurricane Katrina and help affected communities restore and rebuild. Simply put, he has the skills, experience, and commitment we need to realize the dream of thriving schools.

School board elections matter. I encourage every Jeffco citizen to vote in this election and to vote for Thomas Wicke for Jeffco Board of Education.
