Dear Editor:

Please remember to vote on Tuesday April 2. There are important decisions to be made by us the taxpayers.

Two well qualified individuals are running for Wausau Board of Education. Voigt Smith has served our country in the United State Air Force and is an entrepreneur who has deep interest in the value of the quality in our education system. He is a tireless worker and will look out for the best interest of our children.

Jim Bouche, a former Wausau School District employee, went on to be educator, principal and administrator in a diverse northern WI school district. He has a wealth of innovative ideas to continue keeping the Wausau School District moving forward to be one of the best in the state, if not the nation.

Many challenges are ahead in education and these two men have the experience and drive to serve the children and taxpayers in Wausau.

VOTE Smith and Bouche April 2!!

Joanne Leonard, Wausau
