To the Editor:

I have known Dr. Kathleen Harder and her family for many years. She’s down-to-earth, easy to talk to, and genuinely concerned with those around her. Her compassion is matched only by her willingness to work hard.  That makes her a great doctor, and it will also make her a very effective member of the Salem-Keizer School Board.

Kathleen is a dedicated mom who, alongside her husband Rob, has raised a bright and talented young man who graduated from the Salem-Keizer public school system and is headed off to college. She is passionate about our public school system. I know she will work hard to ensure our students, teachers, and administrators have everything they need to be successful.

I’m proud to endorse Kathleen, and I join more than 50 other endorsements, including the Salem-Keizer Education Association, Stand for Children, and many others throughout our community.

Please join me in voting for Dr. Kathleen Harder for Salem-Keizer School Board.
