Chasan qualified for job

I urge you to mark your ballot for Dan Chasan.

It’s easy to overlook the school board election this year with the hospital district and park district occupying much of the island’s attention. With this in mind, I’m urging you to look at Position 1 of our school board.

Dan Chasan, the incumbent, is facing opposition from a previous member of the board. Understand that the school district is by far the costliest public entity on the island. Dan’s qualifications represent a valuable asset to the school district. He’s a practicing attorney that is vital in our litigious society but what really sets him apart is his knowledge of school finances. He’s careful and prudent and able to grasp the budget complexity as the district faces budget shortfalls.

With this in mind, I urge you to mark your ballot for Dan Chasan.
