Two experienced persons for West Fargo School BoardAs voters consider their options for the West Fargo School District, careful consideration must be given. Experience and balance are qualities to keep in mind. Angela Korsmo and Karen Nitzkorski, who are currently school board members and candidates, bring a total of 21 years of experience to the board.
Fresh ideas are important, but for a board that is focused on policy, experience is also very important. The loss of these two members will mean the board is filled with members who have a maximum of two years of experience. That does not seem to present a very good balance. The staff and the public deserve a board that will understand the long- term effects of any decision. Korsmo and Nitzkorski carry that experience.
I have had the opportunity to serve directly with both of them during my six years on the board, and both have outstanding abilities and come with high integrity and a strong interest to do the best for the district.
They have my support, and I urge all within the voting area to support them as well.
