Lettr: Scheffel's experience crucial

Posted

I was thrilled to see Debora Scheffel announce her candidacy for the Douglas County school board. Dr. Scheffel started her career right here in Douglas County as a special education teacher, and she has devoted her entire life to serving students and educators. Most recently, she represented the 6th Congressional District as a Republican member of the Colorado State Board of Education for six years.

Someone with Dr. Scheffel's level of experience, knowledge and dedication to education will be incredibly valuable to our school district. There are already some attacking her for being a prominent elected official in the realm of education, but I think her decades of experience provide an incredible opportunity to accomplish great things for Douglas County students.

I'm excited to see Debora and the rest of the Elevate Douglas County team - Randy Mills, Ryan Abresch, and Grant Nelson - lead board meetings after November. I believe they will provide the kind of leadership our district needs to face the challenges of the coming years.
