Reader's view: Lofald's campaign is moving
I am confident Jill Lofald is the best candidate possible for the District 4 Duluth School Board seat. I have known Lofald for the past six and a half years in numerous roles.
She coached my son in speech. He learned more and put more to use from her as coach than almost any other activity in which he took part. He went on to use her speech strategies in three different internships while attending the University of Wisconsin in Madison. One of his internships was with U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar in Washington, D.C.
When Lofald was working with my son four years ago, I was so impressed with her teaching that I volunteered with her program as an assistant coach. I became even more inspired by her professionalism, compassion, and dedication to the students of Duluth as I watched her and her colleagues form a team of East and Denfeld students, an award-winning team where everyone received an equal education.
That equality, compassion, and professionalism is exactly what Lofald will bring to the School Board and district.
I've never written a letter of endorsement before. Jill Lofald's campaign has moved me. We need her on the board.
