As executive director of the Fort Wayne Education Association for 22 years, I regularly attended Fort Wayne Community Schools school board meetings. I know firsthand how important it is to have school board members who have a sincere heart and concern for students, teachers, administrators and support personnel.
Anne Duff has had a very successful teaching career. She has been active in PTA and she is a parent of children in FWCS. Duff is wise to the reformers who wish to undermine public schools through funding cuts and constant attacks on the performance of the schools. As a strong advocate for public education, I heartily support her candidacy for an at-large school board position. She is a professional educator who would serve our community well.
My family and I encourage friends of our Fort Wayne public schools to join us in voting for Anne Duff on Nov. 4.
