Letter: Gehrke would be breath of fresh air

I encourage people to vote for Chris Gehrke for the Cedar Rapids School Board. I met him at a “get to know the candidates” gathering on Aug. 31 at the IBEW.

I found him intelligent thoughtful and informed. Having five children in the system gives him great insight.

I think he would be a breath of fresh air and a great addition to the board.
