There is a point in a public servant’s time of service where their ideas are no longer fresh, where after many years they have nothing more to offer than experience. This is not uncommon with people holding any office for extended periods of time. Sumner School District’s Director Position 2 is currently held by one of those long-time members and is being contested this election.
Fortunately, we have a choice – and an excellent one, at that. Paul Bucich is a person I have come to know, one who recognizes that the Sumner School District is an excellent place to educate his children, and he wants to ensure that excellence continues. Paul’s children are currently enrolled in Sumner schools; he and his wife are active in their scholastic lives.
Bucich sees “the big picture” – not just from the silo of the District board room. He understands the concept of collaboration and knows there are plenty of qualified experts within the District whose knowledge can be drawn upon for major decisions. Bucich is professional, motivated, and energetic, and I believe he will be an outstanding representative of the Sumner School District.
