Editor, The Beacon:
I appreciate you allowing me the opportunity to express my endorsement of Al Bouie for Volusia County School Board District 1.
I know that Mr. Bouie is the best candidate to represent Volusia County School Board, District 1, because he has the leadership skills and vision to establish policies that will best support our school superintendent, teachers and students.
Also, I am convinced that Al will work to place the proper resources in the classroom to best assist our teachers and students achieve success.
I would like for all members in the community to support and vote for Al, because he has the moral character that clearly demonstrates he is the best candidate for the School Board.
I am making my endorsement of this candidate as a longtime member of this community and as a 30-year military-combat veteran.
