Let's keep Norman schools the best in the state

Let’s keep Dan on the School Board

Vote April 5th

Look who is supporting Dan!

Hint: Teachers, Moms, business leaders

Hear from local educators who endorse Dan.

I confidently recommend   Dan Snell for re-election of school board candidate office 2.  He has made great strides in this position. Some of his accomplishments include  Championing the transparency of financial reporting, including timely reception of annual audit reports,  Maintaining professional development center when the state eliminated funding, and now advancing its new location at the Nancy O’Brien Center Lobbying our state legislature for adequate funding, opposing vouchers, similarly for Congress, especially emphasizing full funding for Special Education and for continuing impact aid  Moving Dimensions Academy from state-owned quarters to NPS’s new building, supporting alternative education program when the state cut funding for it.  I believe he will put our students first and strive to find common ground with other board members as a team player.

Dan Snell is an exemplary school board member who cares about all the kids in Norman. He is an active supporter of the arts in schools, as well as an enthusiastic patron of the arts. His decisions are always thoughtful and, most importantly, derived from kindness. I will vote for him April 5, and I hope many others will too.

Teaching experience is surely desirable for School Board members. But how much, you might ask? A couple of years at two different schools for Dan’s worthy opponent or Dan Snell’s four decades of teaching while still finding time to spend with the kiddos in addition to his 25 years of service on Norman’s School Board. And he continues to teach as well as take courses at Osher Lifelong Learning at OU.

As a professional educator I know how important it is to be surrounded by thoughtful, respectful, knowledgeable leaders and decision-makers. I trust Dan Snell to make the right decisions for students, teachers, parents and our community. Please re-elect Dan, in turbulent times we need strong, decisive and experienced leadership.
