Teachers' union endorses Hayes, Waterman, Winkler

After interviewing candidates for the upcoming Forest Grove School Board races, the Forest Grove Education Association makes the following recommendations: Position 1 — John Hayes: John is currently the vice-chairman for the School Board and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from the higher education world. John is well spoken and versed in the issues facing FGSD. Position 2 — Charless Waterman: Currently serving vacated position on the board, Charless wants to take her experience at the school level and expand that to a commitment at the district level. She believes we need to get a handle on class size and supports a well-rounded education. Her opponent did not return messages left to schedule an interview. Position 3 — Lonnie Winkler: Lonnie is a current member of the FGSD Budget Committee and is aware of the issues facing the district. As a parent in the district, his heartfelt concern for the needs for our students and its educators came across in thoughtful, genuine responses.
