I am writing in support of Jack Davidson for D200 school board. I have known Jack for years, he’s our guy, and here’s why:

• Jack has spent half of his career in process improvement and cost efficiency.

• He has a background managing large financial budgets — including a $150 million budget across five P&Ls and oversight of all proposals and contracts.

• He understands relationships, which is crucial to his business, so for him this is standard operating procedure, systemic to his approach.

• He is a long-term thinker, developing sustainable ideas so we can all afford to live our lives here — while expecting the same excellence as outputs from OPRF.

Our incumbents have worked hard, but in my opinion hard does not always mean in-sync. I appreciate and value insights and perspective each member brings to the board table, but I feel that accountability is a reality that we need at OPRF in short order.

Let us be honest, we need thoughtful leadership that inspires accountability and results, driven by prescriptive outcomes. Let us elect leaders who are reliable stewards of our precious tax dollars that can also improve the educational experience and improve performance of our district.
