Hutchins thanks supporters

It has been a pleasure to visit with the wonderful voters of the Stevensburg District.

It has been rewarding to hear the positive comments you’ve shared about our schools and our community. The concerns and suggestions we discussed have been passed on to the Superintendent.

Once again, let me state that I am, and always will be, available to talk with you. I value the input of all stakeholders. I attend school events and talk with parents and students. I attend community events and speak with local business and government leaders. I am in Richmond each year to discuss issues at the state level. Our Board invites state legislators here to see first-hand what is happening in our schools.

One School Board member does not have the power to do anything alone. Working together as a team, the School Board affects change. One School Board member CAN ask the hard questions, bring issues to the Board’s attention and push for improvements and change. I have always spoken up for our students and our teachers. I have pushed for excellence.  I have pushed for transparency and open communication. I will continue to do so.

The School Board hires the Superintendent to manage the daily operations of the school system. He hired the staff and promotes good practices system wide.

I have served the citizens of two county districts. My commitment to our students and my involvement in the schools is well known. School staff will tell you I am in the buildings frequently to listen and learn.

I will continue to advocate for ALL students and for ALL of our staff.  My decisions are based on what is best for our children.

I would appreciate your vote for School Board for the Stevensburg District on November 7. Thank you.
