Supports Worthington for NK School Board

The only issue on the primary election ballot in North Kitsap is North Kitsap School Board director, District 3. I encourage you to vote for the most qualified candidate, Beth Worthington.

I have known Beth since the 1990s, and she’s the intelligent, energetic, questioning sort of person the North Kitsap School Board needs. She sees the need to involve the community in district planning and decisions for the future of our schools in order to meet the needs of all of our students. Beth believes that a board’s decision is not done until the public understands the rationale behind it.

Beth will focus on student learning, smaller class sizes and broad educational programs including music, art, and athletics. She will be a good steward of our property taxes that fund our schools. She wants to inform the community as to what the levy is being spent on and engage it in planning what a renewal levy will fund.

Just as students are tested, Beth will advocate for the board to evaluate itself annually as was done in the past and as its policy says it will do.

Please join me and five other former school board members in endorsing and voting for Beth Worthington.

The primary vote is Aug. 6, and the voters within the North Kitsap School District have primary candidates to consider.

It is very important that a district director be able to address the current and future realities facing the school board and the emerging student bodies. For me, the next district director should be Beth Worthington.

Please vote.
