Boylan for school board

To the editor: Brandon Boylan is running for school board, Seat C, and I’ll be voting for him.

Brandon is an inspired educator, a genuinely kind and generous person and a wonderful father. He is strongly motivated by a tireless work ethic. He is a talented and efficient administrator and possesses a sharp analytical mind. Brandon is also tremendously humble, open-minded, well-humored and collaborative. He has strong communication skills, which is essential for a successful school board member.

On the board, Brandon will listen to parents, teachers, community stakeholders and especially students. He will be fair in his judgment and advocate for our kids to receive the education they deserve.

Brandon has been endorsed by the Fairbanks Education Association/National Education Association, a clear sign that he is the best fit for Seat C.

Brandon’s campaign slogan is “Kids first.” It is refreshing to hear a candidate running for public office in the borough adopt that philosophy. We need to ensure that student success is a priority in our community. Electing Brandon to the school board is the right next step toward this goal.
