MacLean is accessible, responsive and deserves re-election to Snoqualmie Valley School Board | Letter

I’d like to express my support for Tavish MacLean’s re-election to the Snoqualmie Valley School District School Board.

A member of the school board should have strong character, be accessible and responsive, and drive improvements across the district, and Tavish has all three qualities.

I’ve taught his three sons in my P.E. classes over the years, and the boys have been engaged and respectful, so it’s no surprise that Tavish has always made time to listen to my input, share his perspective and follow up to address any outstanding questions I might have. T

he biggest impact Tavish and the board have made that affects me is supporting the bond that included a new gym at Snoqualmie Elementary School, providing a much-needed secondary space for P.E. and creating equity across elementary schools. The gym will be put to use as soon as it’s complete in January.

A vote for Tavish is a vote for progress in the Snoqualmie Valley School District!
