To the Editor,

As a resident of Midlothian for more than 20 years, I am pleased to endorse Andrea Walton for the MISD School Board.

I first worked with Andrea as a fellow board member when I was President of the Corporation for Economic Development for the City of Midlothian. During this service, I observed the integrity, intelligence and common sense she used in evaluating economic projects worth millions of dollars. These evaluations required discretion and confidentiality which she exhibited throughout.

As a Board Member, Andrea will lead to insure the excellence of our schools as MISD experiences the challenges of rapid growth.
