Wilson is right for school board | Letters

I’m writing today to ask that you consider voting for Claire Wilson in her quest to become a member of the Federal Way School Board.
I’ve known Claire for about eight years and find her to be one of the most intelligent and dedicated people around. We served together on the Valhalla PTA, where I learned about finding solutions and not making excuses. She knows how to do much, much more with much, much less. Her leadership as president of the PTA helped the families at Valhalla become more involved in their children’s education. Her “Everything You Want To Know” program brought a very diverse group of parents, many whose first language is not English, into the school and provided tools they could use to ensure their children get the most out of their elementary years.
Although her two children have moved on from Valhalla, she remains active in her neighborhood school. My friend Claire can charm you with both her sense of humor and infectious laugh as well as amaze you with her vast amount of knowledge and her calm, level-headed approach to problem solving. And you’ll not meet someone with more heart and commitment when it comes to children and their futures. Please take some time to check Claire Wilson for Federal Way School Board, position 2.
