LETTER: Supporting Penke Valdes for District 282 board

To the Editor:
I support Lynne Penke Valdes in her run for the St. Anthony-New Brighton School Board. Lynne always has the best interests of all students in her heart. She has demonstrated this with her work at Hennepin County, where she currently works in youth education strategies, and with her active involvement in the St. Anthony-New Brighton school district. 

Lynne provided input in the district’s strategic planning process seven years ago. She supported students by serving on the St. Anthony Middle School Community Fund, she has helped raise funds for all students by serving on the St. Anthony-New Brighton Education Foundation and she has volunteered as an interpreter at the middle school from time to time. 

I know from personal experience that Lynne is not afraid to advocate for kids. When doing so, she always presents her case in a well-reasoned and positive way. Lynne will make an excellent school board member.

Robert Laney
Retired superintendent St. Anthony-New Brighton School District
