To the Editor,

Andrea Walton is the best choice to serve as MISD School Board Trustee for the open seat in Place 7. I was fortunate to see Andrea’s tireless and genuine dedication to our kids and our district almost seven years ago when we worked together to inform voters about the importance of investing in our schools to reduce the over-crowding that we were experiencing at Midlothian High School at the time. It was clear to me back in 2011 that Andrea would be a fantastic school board trustee. I saw first-hand Andrea’s willingness to listen with compassion to our community’s concerns, her ability to explain the needs of our district, and her genuine concern for all the students in MISD. In addition to her exceptional communication skills, Andrea’s financial background is just what we need to make sure that the dollars approved in this recent bond are used wisely. She will dig into the details, study the data, and ensure good stewardship of our tax dollars. Lots of changes are ahead for MISD with the rapid growth, and we must elect board members like Andrea who know how to manage our resources carefully so that we can adapt to changes in needs.

I am excited to cast my vote on May 6th for Andrea Walton for Place 7 and hope you will join me!

Sincerely,

Brenda Colvin
