Letter: Marion board write-in candidate suggestion

The Marion Independent School District has a unique opportunity on Sept. 12 to elect three directors to their board. Two candidates have put their name on the ballot; but there is a third position open. A write-in candidate could be written in for that position.

I suggest that Marion voters consider adding Diane Zrudsky’s name to the ballot. Zrudsky is a longtime educator in the area’s public schools, and has taught professionals as part of the University of Wisconsin — Stout staff. She is a person whose only agenda is what is good for children and good for education. Her depth of knowledge comes from her role as an educator, a parent, and grandparent of Marion students.

Do consider writing in Diane Zrudsky on the school election ballot. Spelling counts so please take note of the spelling of her last name. Marion district voters cannot do better than to elect Zrudsky to their board.
