Support for Budke | Letter

Dixie Budke is my neighbor.  I am writing in support of Dixie Budke for School Board. Dixie is a jewel. She is an educator and she has real world experience in both business, and human and organizational development. One thing that has convinced me that Dixie understands the needs of students are the words of one of her former students, “I would have dropped out if you hadn’t pushed me forward.”

Dixie was the first professor to utilize the internet in classes in her school. She arranged field trips and brought in experts in various fields to share with the students. In other words she took the time to help bring the world to her students.  Another student testifies, “I own and operate my first Inn/Restaurant/”Bar and I couldn’t have done it without you.”

Yes, Dixie is my choice for School Board. She cares about students, she is interested in vocational training as well as high academic achievements and has the experience to make a positive difference.
