To the Editor:

I am writing to share my sincere enthusiasm in advocating for Debbie Dunlap as she runs as a candidate for one of the open positions on the Reynoldsburg school board.

I am a longtime resident of Reynoldsburg and am a parent of three grown children, all of whom graduated from Reynoldsburg City Schools.

I have followed the school board and its members over the many years I have lived in our wonderful city. This past year, I was highly impressed by Debbie Dunlap while she participated in the communitywide clean-up week for the senior citizens of Reynoldsburg. I believe Debbie would be an asset to our board of education and would have the students' best interest in mind for ensuring they have access to a high-quality education and bright future.

I believe Debbie will be successful in her role as a school board member, considering she herself is a loving parent and was raised by a parent who was an educator. Having a school board member who is passionate for helping youth is highly valued by citizens like myself who have raised families and have seen generations of children grow through Reynoldsburg schools.

Debbie Dunlap's peppy, genuine and kindhearted nature are what Reynoldsburg most needs at this time in a school board member and what students most need in someone who will represent them at the administrative level.
