Former school employee is fan of mayor

John Wise’s concern for our community has been evident for a long time. As our school district’s business manager I worked closely with him when he was a member of the Enumclaw School District board of directors and served as its president for part of that responsibility.

I saw him demonstrate leadership, organizational skill and fiscal responsibility throughout his term. He worked in a cooperative manner with our staff and with the other board members.

There was always a positive and constructive relationship during his time on our board. He is a caring and concerned individual and the kind of person who should be leading our community.
