Support for Deana Brower

I had the pleasure of meeting and personally speaking with Spokane School Board candidate Deana Brower recently and our conversation provided more than enough insight for me to believe that she will work best with parents, the community and school district staff in the long-term, best interest of our schools and, most importantly, our children’s education. Now, I see why her endorsement list is nothing short of the “A Team” from our community leadership. Not only is Brower the top name on the ballot, she is the top choice for Spokane schools and my children’s future.
