In her last (misleading) mailer, Teri Hickel touts her quarterback award from the Seahawks, her Golden Shovel award from the Federal Way Community Gardens and being awarded the Key to the City by Mayor Jim Ferrell.
All quite wonderful, I’m sure. But, voters are interested in education! Teri’s opponent, Carol Gregory, is a former elementary school teacher, a former president of the Washington Education Association and has worked in the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and was elected to the Federal Way school board.
Which of the two strikes you as more knowledgeable about education?
Teri states she will “hit the ground running,” but I fail to see where her experience qualifies her to do so.
Carol, on the other hand, has been working for the last year in the Legislature since being sworn in to replace Roger Freeman.
Teri likes to showcase the picture of her picture with the mayor as she was awarded the Key to the City — but it is Carol Gregory that Ferrell endorsed — not Teri.
Let’s stick with tried and true instead of experimenting with a less seasoned contender. Vote for Carol Gregory!
