McGann has the qualities needed by school board

I am writing today to commend the efforts of Tina McGann, who is running for Enumclaw School Board position 4.

I have known Tina for several years, since our children were in preschool together. Ever since the beginning of our relationship, I have known without a doubt that Tina always puts children first. She is committed, passionate, professional, kind, caring, empathetic and the list can go on and on.

For my family there is no one else that I would be more comfortable representing us than her. I can say that without a doubt she stands with integrity and dignity and treats others that way as well. She is more than qualified. She has been attending school board meetings for more than three years. She has been on the Black Diamond PTA board for several years with the last two as our president and helped with and led parts of the full-day kindergarten program with the Enumclaw Schools Foundation. She has rallied our community with her generous, kind and authentic spirit with many events and supporting the school bonds and levies we’ve needed to pass. The company that she and her husband own, McGann Electric, helped sponsor the community event for Rachel’s Challenge last month. Their commitment to our community, our families, our children is truly amazing. I know that she honors the needs of my child and your child as much as she honors and demands for her own children.

I am asking you to consider voting for Tina McGann. We need her voice to represent us on the Enumclaw School Board. She is running for the right reasons. She will not let us down. She will continue acting with dignity and integrity while representing all of us, most importantly representing our children.
