I’ve lived in the Sumner School District for over 50 years and taught at Sumner High a number of years, so good schools are important to me.

The Sumner School Board positions over the years have often been neglected. Four years ago, they had three openings and only one person ran for each position. Most other districts have multiple candidates.

This year there is an important change because in District 4 we have two candidates running.

One of the candidates is a very special neighbor of mine, 41-year-old Casey Chamberlain, who has been very involved in Sumner school activities. He has never run before, but feels strongly compelled to run now because of his 12-year-old twins. He and his wife, Rhonda, want our schools to be the very best.

Chamberlain is already spending many hours working towards the school board position. He has been regularly attending school board meetings to see how they operate and what their major issues are. Other than his family and his job, the school board comes next.

Our school board needs this dedicated, qualified, organized, motivated and super-positive-attitude individual now. If you heard him speak, you would see his enthusiasm.
