Letter: Ardinger gets things done
I write in strong support of Kass Ardinger for state Senate District 15.
I served on the Concord School Board with Kass for six years. During that time, she demonstrated her strong commitment to public service and the education of our children.
These traits will serve her, and us, the citizens of District 15, well. As a board member, she displayed a striking ability to work collaboratively with various interest groups to achieve positive results.
For example, when the roundabout in the area of Dewey School was being considered, completion of the project required cooperation between the school district and the city.
Kass participated in countless meetings on the subject and her thoughtful consideration of the issues and unique ideas on how to get the work done led to successful completion of the project.
Had the city and the district not worked together, the project may not have been done, and the intense traffic problem at that tricky intersection would not have been corrected.
Moreover, she was instrumental in the elementary school consolidation project that led to the completion of three state-of-the-art elementary schools on time, under budget and with minimal negative impact to the Concord taxpayer.
This is remarkable considering that the project was done during an economic downturn that devastated many governmental agencies throughout our country and state. Kass spearheaded this once-in-a-generation project, and Concord will enjoy the benefits for decades.
I urge you to vote for Kass. She gets things done.
