Letters to the Editor: A ‘fresh voice’ for school board

want to express my support for Stephanie Mantie for a position on the Silver Falls School Board. She has the intellect and background that would greatly benefit our school district at this time.   

Stephanie has been actively involved in our local schools and has built solid relationships with our diverse community. She believes that the school district needs to be an active partner with our parents in providing the education to our students.   

Stephanie will provide a fresh voice and perspective as the district moves back to full in-person learning and moves beyond this troubling time for our district.  

I strongly urge you to take the time to vote and to cast your vote for Stephanie.

Wally Lierman,
Central Howell
