Letters to the Editor

Hogeterp thanks voters

Editor: I want to thank all those who came out and voted for me in the board of education byelection on Jan. 15. We worked hard and came close, but it was not to be.

This was an odd election, with no mayor, no council on the ballot, and only one school trustee to be elected. It helps to know that those who came out to vote for me did so because they believed I was the best person for the job, and made the effort to demonstrate that support by voting.

Voter turnout was disappointing, making me all the more appreciative of those who made the effort.

I congratulate Cecelia Reekie, and wish her and the board of education well.

Hattie Hogeterp,
