To the Editor:

I am supporting Chuck Lee for Salem/Keizer School Board Zone 6

I have known Chuck for over 25 years and have seen his commitment to education first hand.

Over the years, we have worked on various projects and committees where I was fortunate to watch and learn from him. His knowledge and connections within our district have made him an asset and keeps stability on our school board.

Back when Chuck was a Keizer City Councilor, he encouraged me to continue my community work and consider taking a more active role in city matters. When I was field director for Keizer Little League and Chuck was president of Blanchet Catholic School, he was a helpful resource on several field projects. I can never forget that.

In 2013, Chuck and wife Krina Lee were honored at the First Citizen Banquet with the “Education Award” for their years of service to education in our district.

As founder and president of the Career and Technical Education Center, he reached out to me to participate on the Advisory Board bringing a diversity of opinions to a nationally renowned school.

I encourage you to vote for a person who has a 35-year record of accomplishments to go with his integrity. 

I encourage you to vote for Chuck Lee.
