This letter is paid content. Dear Residents of Hastings,
I am strongly urging you to vote for Becky Kranz Beissel for School Board next Tuesday. I have known Becky in many capacities over the past 8 years. I have sat across the table from her as a teacher and she as a parent of two of her three children. I have sat beside her as a parent cheering on our kids at sporting events. I have sat messaging her about a loved one’s medical concerns when I needed more explanation. In each scenario, many reasons are obvious as to why she’d be an incredible school board member.
I feel that her training as a nurse brings out many of the qualities a school board member must have. She has a sense of urgency and is able to take the information given to her to make the best possible decisions. She is able to take the emotion out of difficult decisions, and know it has the best possible outcome. She is an excellent listener, and allows you to say what you need to without judgement. I feel this skill will help teachers and district employees feel safe expressing concerns. I also see community members feeling comfortable speaking to someone who’s only agenda is to make District 200 an even better place for students and staff alike.
As a person, Becky is positive, uplifting, and someone that others gravitate towards. Her passion and love for her family and friends are evident in all that she does. She’s honest and trustworthy. For all the reasons above she would be an excellent school board member.
